ALES Mini-Internship Program

The ALES Mini-Internship Program offers a unique opportunity for students to get first-hand learning experience on careers in agriculture, life, and environmental sciences. Twice a year during the Fall and Winter reading weeks, this program matches students with an industry specific organization for a visit and volunteer work. The AMIP also provides engaging virtual presentations from agricultural producers from around the world.

Please note that the program is currently being restructured and may be subject to change. Stay tuned for more information closer to the upcoming Fall 2022 semester.
