RSENR Internship Program

Student intern with wind energyInternships are great opportunities to explore your career interests, build relevant skill sets and make connections in your fields of interest. Many students also find that internships encourage them to apply knowledge and skills gained in the classroom. Internships may be for credit or not, paid or unpaid, part time or full time, and can be built into your class schedule during the academic year or arranged during the summer. The Rubenstein School Internship Program awards academic credit for well-structured internship and research experiences. Internship opportunities exist in Vermont, throughout the United States, and internationally.
