How do I make my internship application outstanding?

Because the focus of our organization is on women’s rights and grassroots organizing, the most outstanding applicants exhibit a strong commitment to and/or experience in one or both of these areas. Some things that might boost an application above others include: previous grassroots organizing experience, through local NOW groups or other organizations; political organizing experience; a strong background in the women’s movement (through activism, academics, or employment); or an exhibited desire to promote ethnic or cultural diversity within the women’s movement or in your community.
