An internship is a short-term work experience in which a college student applies what they have learned in college to the world of work. This learning experience usually involves applying for a position that relates to their major/minor. The student usually receives academic credit and a grade through their curriculum department.
The Montana Department of Agriculture Internship Program is open to any student currently enrolled in an accredited university/college. This includes all public, private, community, vo-tech and Native American institutions of higher learning. Student interns must have a valid drivers license to drive a state vehicle.
Many college students are required to complete an internship prior to graduation. The Department of Agriculture has opportunities available in many fields but positions vary each year. Most are paid positions. Interns must secure their own housing and transportation to the work site.
Internships can be done all year around, however, the majority take place during the months of April-September. The length varies depending on the project that needs to be completed and the timeframe required to get it done. Positions are located statewide.
Intern Announcements can be found in Current openings when positions are avaliable.
