Interns must commit to a minimum of six weeks, but have the opportunity to stay for a year or more. Internships are unpaid. Some interns are placed through established programs of their universities, seminaries, or religious organizations, such as Mennonite Voluntary Service. All participants are encouraged to apply for academic credit from their home institutions for their work at WATER.
Summer internships typically begin in May and finish at the end of July. There is flexibility given the applicant’s schedule. Check out our 2020 WATER Intern Application (pdf or word document) for details.
