Short internship: July 7 - August 6, 2017
Our staff is a flexible, multidisciplinary team. Interns will be accepted into the program with a specific position, but should expect to take on a variety of responsibilities outside of the traditional tasks association with that position. We expect you to be forthcoming about your strengths as well as willing to help in areas with which you are less familiar.
These are intense, full-time positions. Interns work 8 - 10 hours per day and have one day off per week.
How to Apply:
Deadline: We consider internship applications on a rolling basis. Thus, we encourage you to submit your application early in order to secure your preferred position.

Need-based financial aid is available, up to $900 for the full internship and up to $650 for the short internship.
