UNCA Internship Program

Unlock possibilities with the UNCA Internship Program!

The Internship Program is here to connect UNCA juniors and December-graduating seniors to fantastic local internship opportunities that align with your career interests. The registration form is for spring semester internships spanning January – May 2024. Registration is capped at the first 35 eligible students to complete this form. 

How it Works: The purpose of this program is to make your search for a meaningful internship hassle and barrier-free. The program will match you with an employer internship opportunity in the local area. 
Funding: All internships will be funded. If the site’s opportunity is unpaid, the Career Center will pay your wage through our Internship Assistance Fund.
