So you’ve decided that this is the time to get a jump start on your career. This is a worthy investment, of course, but investment may just be the key word. Paid internships for college students are less common than unpaid internships. Luckily, the ANRP Internship Program offers paid internship experiences (in the Washington, D.C. and Austin, Texas programs) with other added benefits. While having a regular source of income is great, it might not cover all internship expenses. That is why we do our best to highlight University, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and outside scholarships to assist with the experience. Internships are a valuable experience, but your investment of time and the allocation of funds need to be addressed before you start the application process. Once the finances have been addressed you will be free to focus on more important things—like figuring out your future.
