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 2017/Spring 2018. The application cannot be edited after January 15, 2018. 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 is now open at this link. Please note all applicants must be a current NUFP Fellow to apply. 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 8-15, 2018.

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. Fellows should carefully consider the internship duration and benefits prior to accepting an internship offer.

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 8-15, 2018.

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 21, 2018.

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.
