The SSP is a paid, on-campus internship designed to give undergraduate students a unique learning experience by allowing them to work side-by-side with Women’s Studies Research Center (WSRC) Scholars in a multitude of fields.

The program is open to Brandeis undergraduate students and offers positions each fall and spring semester. Students are hired for 50 hours over the course of the semester. In a few cases, two students share the 50 hours.
