Summer Internship Host Institution Information

1. HOW DO I SUBMIT MY INTERNSHIP POSTING? When is the deadline?

Submit your posting online. The application needs to be entered into the system by January 4, 2019. NUFP is happy to accommodate postings after this deadline. Please email [email protected] and we will communicate the listing to all applicants.

2. WHO CAN HOST AN INTERN?

Anyone that is a NASPA member or who is on a campus with an NASPA institutional membership can host a NUFP Fellow as a summer intern. You do not need to have a current NUFP Fellow on your campus in order to host one in the summer. Your institution can host as many interns as you would like!

3. WHAT IS THE COMMITMENT THAT MY CAMPUS IS MAKING?

By agreeing to host a Fellow(s) on your campus, you guarantee your intern a student affairs experience on a campus other than their own. We ask that you give your intern specific job responsibilities and expose your intern to as many student affairs departments and administrators as possible. We also ask that you help them become more familiar with NASPA and the field.

Internship start and end dates are flexible. You work these out with the Fellow you choose to hire. Most internships last 6-8 weeks during June and July.

We require that you pay your intern a minimum of $1,500 for a 6-8 week internship. While hosts are not required to pay for housing, meals, and/or transportation, we ask that you offer assistanece to your intern as they make arrangements. Please note that positions that are able to cover some of these expenses are much more attractive to candidates.

4. WHAT IS THE PROCESS?

Institutions wishing to host a Fellow submit an internship description online. After the position submission deadline, Fellows are notified of the internship opportunities available and submit their applications online. Each Fellow will rank their top five choices.

After the application deadline, host institutions receive copies of all Fellows' applications and preferences. Host institutions then set-up interviews with the candidates. Most interviews are conducted over the phone but, can be done in person if both parties are attending the NASPA Annual Conference.

To be fair to all candidates, host institutions can not begin making offers until the specified date of February 22, 2019.

Once a Fellow has accepted a position, the Fellow and/or institution must notify the NASPA office of the match. Please email [email protected] to confirm your match by March 10, 2019.
