Deadline

The deadline to apply for a Summer 2017 internship is three weeks before you want to begin the internship -

  • April 17 to begin the internship the week of May 8.
  • May 8 to begin the internship the week of June 5.

You can begin your internship on other dates but must submit your application at least three weeks before you want to start. You also should check Dr. Cude’s schedule; she may not be in the office every week to accept applications. All applications must be submitted in person.

If there is a signed MOU with the internship placement (check #4 below), applications will be accepted closer to the internship start date. Confirm this with Dr. Cude.

The deadline to apply for a Fall 2017 internship is three weeks before you want to begin the internship –

  • July 24 if you want to begin the internship with the start of classes (August 14) and there isn’t already a signed MOU in place.
  • If there is a signed MOU with the internship placement (check #4 below), applications will be accepted closer to the internship start date. Confirm this with Dr. Cude.

Email Dr. Cude to schedule an appointment to apply for internship.

Remember that unless you have completed FHCE 5900, you aren't eligible for an internship for academic credit. 

Read the deadlines section of the Requirements to Apply for an Internship for more information. 

Print out and complete the checklist -- if you can't check off everything, you aren't ready to submit your application. I cannot accept print-outs of poorly scanned files.

International students pursuing an unpaid internship should complete the Curricular Practical Training. Email immigration.uga.edu or view the info sheet for more information.
