The UF/IFAS Summer Extension Internship Program is a collaboration between the Florida Cooperative Extension Service and the Graham Center for Public Service at the University of Florida.
Students participating in this paid internship will work with county Extension faculty to deliver educational programming throughout the state of Florida. The purposes of this program are to expose students to career possibilities in Cooperative Extension and to provide support to extension agents and the communities they serve.
Together with the local Extension agent, students will work in one or more of these program areas:
- Agricultural and horticultural enterprises
- Water resources
- Natural resources and environmental quality
- Individual and family development
- Community resources and economic development
- 4-H Youth Development
Students will work 40 hours a week for 8 weeks and will be paid $14 per hour. We will only place interns in counties that submit a proposal to host them.
Student applications are also due February 23, 2018.
After reviewing the applications, we will match the appropriate student, program area, and location. ***Students will be contacted with a hiring decision by the end of April 2018***
