Each summer, we offer 2 or 3 internships, usually focusing on a specific issue or project with a team of students from different colleges. These are unpaid, but they are generally structured to require <15 hrs/wk so students so students can still hold down a job if they want. Are you interested in and able to do an unpaid internship? (At some colleges, that makes students eligible for stipends and/or free summer housing.)
In addition, some students who are planning a fall internship for credit elect to get a head start by doing background research over the summer.
The focus for summer 2017 is not yet certain, but it is likely that we will focus on developing an interdisciplinary approach to teaching about food in schools.
