What is the Extension Internship?
UGA Extension offers paid internships ($455 per week) for college students to work for one semester in a county Extension office. Students will be matched with an agent in the county or region they prefer, if possible. The internship can be completed during any semester during the year. There are a limited number of paid internships available each year.
For more information, view the Extension Internship brochure (pdf).
Interns will have the opportunity to:
- get involved in Extension programming,
- experience 4-H, maybe even go to camp, and
- earn college credits. It will be up to the student to work with the internship coordinator in their department to arrange for college credits.
Applicants must be:
- Enrolled (or the semester immediately following graduation) as an undergraduate or graduate student in a degree program that would qualify the participant for employment as an Extension agent
- Interested in pursuing a career in Extension
