Applying for an Internship

Students selected for internships must attend orientation on Saturday, January 20, at 9:30 am.

Before submitting an application, carefully review the detailed application procedures and frequently asked questions. Your cover letter and resume must be combined into a single document, in either Word or PDF format, and attached to your e-mail. We will not accept a link to your own cloud/drive which we must download. Also, you must specify in your cover letter any periods when you are not available for an in-person interview. (Applications which do not conform to posted procedures will not be acknowledged or processed.)

Applications are reviewed and decisions made on a rolling, first-come, first-considered basis, so apply early for full consideration. Each internship opportunity will be removed from the list once it is filled. You may apply to up to three internships.
