To be considered for a paid internship, applicants must complete an internship application form and submit it along with a resume, cover letter, and the name and address of at least one reference with knowledge of the applicant's public history and/or academic skills. Applications should be submitted by April 17. After applications are reviewed and evaluated, students will be notified if an interview will be scheduled.
