We currently have positions available in several fields, as listed below. Applicants should be serious, highly motivated and have the necessary experience as described for each position. Interns will be paired with an experienced mentor in their area of concentration.
At present, we only offer unpaid internships, intended for the applicant to gain field experience. Applicants are encouraged to seek credit through their respective colleges and university programs, if applicable.
Interns will receive relevant training, fieldwork experience as well as guaranteed references. References will only be provided to those who satisfactorily complete their internship term.
