2023 Summer Internships

We need your support to make this summer a success! Individuals and organizations in Dane County can support in the following ways:

  • Host an intern: We work with a variety of organizations in Dane County to place highly qualified interns in paid positions. Our minimum internship period is 6-8 weeks, though we have some interns work as many as 12 weeks. Applications are due no later than March 31, 2023. Learn more below!

  • Volunteer to host a professional development workshop: Throughout the summer, our interns will participate in Friday workshops led by employers to build skills or learn and become more prepared for their future careers. Some of last year’s workshops included: “The Importance of Goal Setting in a Career”, “Communication Skills in the Workplace”, “Project Management”, and “Interview Tips & Tricks”.
  • Sponsor an internship: Unpaid internship experiences perpetuate inequality, and create barriers for access to opportunities. We pay all of our interns a minimum of $15/hour, and the support of our donors helps to maximize the number of students we can connect to these opportunities!

How do I learn more?

This was a really valuable experience. Having a younger person in the office brings a different perspective that we don’t typically have in our staff. This also gives us a chance to build our pipeline of potential candidates and general connectedness in the Madison community. Lastly but not least, our intern brought great energy and was ultimately a fun and positive person to join our office this summer. He will be missed!” –National Council on Crime & Delinquency

I always find that interns energize me and make me feel younger and more productive. I enjoy having them in my lab”. –UW Extension Plant Disease Diagnostics Clinic

I enjoyed my internship this summer because of all the experiences I had with my coworkers and supervisor. They were extremely welcoming, and the time I had with them felt very nice. I’ve learned a lot of personal things along this way and one of my highlights was when we all ate Indian food in the small room and just had a good laugh”. -T.T., Curate Intern, Class of 2019

I enjoyed every part of this internship, from the time management to the learning experiences I had with shadowing my supervisors. I was able to see how occupational therapists work in a hospital.” -K.P., UW Health Intern, Class of 2019
