Student Internship Resources
Your specific major may require a particular internship course, practicum, clinical, student teaching or field experience for graduation. These resources will help assist you in making the necessary decisions.
North Carolina college students can get valuable work experience with government and nonprofits this summer through the NC COVID-19 Student Response Corps. The program, launched in 2020, provides a database to help match college students in need of work experience with local governments and nonprofits seeking additional help during the pandemic. Most intern projects are virtual and opportunities include grant writing and research, marketing and communications, community engagement and volunteer coordination, data analysis, strategic planning, and more. The first cohort of interns worked with county economic development departments, local chambers of commerce, nonprofit service providers, arts organizations, and others.
