As a CRS Global Campus, Marquette students are eligible to apply for internships with CRS. We hope you will consider joining the ranks of Marquette students and alumni who work domestically and internationally for CRS.
An internship at Catholic Relief Services provides you with the professional experience, knowledge and skills to help you enter the world of international Non-Governmental Organizations. CRS offers you the opportunity to work with a diverse group of colleagues and gain exposure to the international relief and development world, including valuable contacts and useful references. An internship at CRS is an excellent way to develop your professional skills and explore the field of international development with a faith-based organization.
Headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, Catholic Relief Services eases suffering and provides assistance to people in need, without regard to race, religion or nationality. There are many opportunities to become a part of CRS' high-performing, high-impact culture.
Overseas, CRS works through offices located in the regions of Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Latin America and the Caribbean. Programs and responsibilities vary by country and include emergency response and recovery, agriculture, health, education, microfinance, water and sanitation, justice and peacebuilding, and partnership and capacity strengthening. Most of CRS's overseas staff get their start through the International Development Fellows Program (IDFP).
CRS also works through regional offices within the United States to support Catholic individuals, parishes and dioceses as they strive to live their faith in solidarity with the poor and make decisions as consumers, voters and advocates to promote more just and peaceful societies. CRS hires US-based staff to work in capacities including business operations, communications, fundraising, government relations, and regional partnership management.
Catholic Relief Services considers all applicants on the basis of merit without regard to race, national origin, religious beliefs, gender, age, marital status or physical or mental disability. CRS' talent acquisition procedures reflect their commitment to protecting children and vulnerable adults from abuse and exploitation.
Many Marquette alumni have answered the call to "be the difference" by pursuing careers with CRS. They have worked in various capacities domestically and internationally. Below are bios of a few notable alumni.
