The Food Systems Intern Program is happy to assist students in finding high quality internship experiences. In accordance with the UVM Internship Policy, students can do internships for credit, not for credit, for pay, not for pay, or any combination of these. Yet, if a student seeks to do an internship credit, or to fulfill a particular departmental requirement, they should consult their department directly for how best to arrange for credit.
If you are a UVM student interested in gaining experience in the field of food systems, contact Matt Myers or stop by the Career + Experience Hub on the first floor of the Davis Center.
As part of your application process, you will complete a brief interest and experience survey so we understand your specific food system interests, experience, skills, and knowledge. You will then meet with Matt to examine possible internship placements with an eye towards crafting the best match between intern and work site. Students from any program or discipline are eligible to apply.
Note for NFS and DNFS students: Any internships that you want to count toward major requirements MUST go through the NFS Internship advisor, Marcia Bristow (Marcia.Bristow@uvm.edu).
