Summer Internship Fellow Information

1. WHO CAN APPLY FOR AN INTERNSHIP? WHAT IS THE DEADLINE?

Anyone who is currently a NUFP Fellow, including those Fellows graduating in December 2018/Spring 2019. The application cannot be edited after January 14, 2019. If you are not currently in the NUFP Program, please see the application information for how to get involved. 

2. HOW DO I SUBMIT MY APPLICATION?

The application for Fellows will open later this Fall. The application includes a copy of a current resume and a statement of interest. Please note all applicants must be a current NUFP Fellow to apply. Once the application is open, Fellows are welcome to start populating information into the application at any time. However, all applicants should plan to log back into their application and select their final internship preferences between January 7 - 14, 2019.

3. WHAT IS THE COMMITMENT THAT I AM MAKING?

You commit to work for your host institution for a mutually agreed upon length of time. Usually 6-8 weeks during the months of June and July. You also agree upon a salary and other benefits before accepting a position that is offered to you. Institutions should offer at minimum $1500 for a 6-8 week internship. As instiutions are not required to provide housing, meals, or travel expenses, we encourage Fellows to carefully consider the internship duration and benefits prior to accepting an offer. NUFP does not offer scholarship or supplemental funding opportunities for Fellows who accept an internship.

4. WHAT IS THE APPLICATION AND SELECTION PROCESS?

If you are interested in applying for an internship, you submit your application online. On your application you will have the opportunity to preference your top five positions. Postings will be added throughout the process and Fellows should make their final preferences between January 7-14, 2019.

After the application deadline, host sites will receive a copy of all completed applications. Each institution will review applications and set up interviews with Fellows that they are interested in pursuing as candidates. Most insititutions will have one to two rounds of interviews to select their summer intern(s). Most initial interviews are phone interviews, but some may occur over video chat.

In order to be fair to all candidates, host institutions can not begin making offers until February 22, 2019.

Once you accept a position, you and/or institution must notify the NASPA office of the match. Fellows should refrain from sharing their internship placement on social media until their institution has notified applicants in their selection pool.
