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 the Lutheran Volunteer Corps. All participants are encouraged to apply for academic credit from their home institutions for their work at WATER.
Summer internships typically begin in late Spring and finish at the end of July. There is flexibility given the applicant’s schedule. The 2022 Summer Internship will run from May 23rd to July 22nd, 2022.
Applications are accepted throughout the year, and interns are invited to come at any time, with usual start dates of September ad May. WATER is flexible in this regard. Give us a call if you have any questions about the program: (301) 589-2509, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
