How to Apply

Applications to Request a Student Intern for the Summer of 2022 are now open.  To submit your application please go to:  https://intern.colostate.edu/application/

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS – Please take the time to thoroughly read the instructions and reach out to Rebecca Hill or Becca Jablonski (contact info below) with any questions or clarifications.

We are pleased to solicit applications for interns for the 2022 Summer Extension Internship Program.

Students will apply to specific internships based on the needs of faculty/staff and Extension agents. This call is to solicit internship opportunities from Faculty/Staff and Extension employees. To learn more about last year’s Extension Internship opportunities please click here.

The internship must be based in Colorado, include applied research, and support stakeholder engagement with regional or county-based Extension agents, including significant time in the field (as allowable under County and State health recommendations).

If you need help connecting with Faculty/Staff or Extension mentors we can help!  Please reach out to Rebecca Hill (Rebec.Hill@Colostate.edu or 970-491-7119) or Becca Jablonski (Becca.Jablonski@ColoState.edu or 970-491-6133) and we can help you make the connection.

This application is due by 5pm on January 14th, and interns will start work anytime after exams end in May 2022. Work must be completed before the start of the semester (August 2022). Interns are expected to work for a period of 10 weeks for approximately 30 hours a week (note that the 10 weeks do not need to be contiguous, in other words, they can take vacation during the internship if it is mutually acceptable by all parties). Interns must be current Colorado State University undergraduate or graduate students, but cannot be Spring 2022 graduates (they must be enrolled at Colorado State University in Fall 2022). Selected students will be paid $4,000 for their participation in the internship program, there is no financial requirement from you as a mentor (however if you have funding to support student travel and/or housing this is appreciated and will be added to the total stipend provided to the student). Multiple interns may be requested but are not guaranteed depending on funding. Priority for a second intern will be given to mentor teams who are able to provide some matching support.

Proposal Expectations – all proposals must demonstrate the following

  • Applied research that supports campus-field engagement
  • Opportunity for student professional development and engaged learning
  • Connection to identified Colorado stakeholder(s) need and connection to one or more of the extension and engagement programmatic areas (programmatic areas can be found at the bottom of this webpage)
  • Willingness of Faculty/Staff and a field-based Extension agent/specialist to serve on the mentor committee (Becca or Rebecca can assist you in finding a great partner!)

Mentor Responsibilities (lead mentor can be either campus or field-based)

  • Review intern applications between Feb 11th and Feb 28th (including interviews of top candidates), and send top three ranked intern selections to Rebecca Hill no later than Feb 28th.
  • Provide on-site orientation to introduce intern to host side and potential partner site(s)
  • Work with intern in first week of internship to set up a daily work schedule, including appropriate number of hours in office
  • Introduce intern throughout community the community to stakeholders as appropriate. Provide training and information to partners/external stakeholders about intern expectations
  • Hold weekly mentor team meetings with the intern during the duration of the internship
  • Provide opportunities for professional development that are in-line with the intern’s stated goals/objectives
  • Provide intern with the tools and resources they need to meet stated goals/objectives
