Spring internship positions are based in 350VT’s Burlington office, although depending on transportation, some work can be done remotely. More hours may be required based on the needs of our campaigns and organization. These positions are unpaid, but we strongly encourage you to get school credit for these internships. If you are a UVM student with a work study award, we may be able to compensate you for fall and spring internships.
We’re now accepting applications for spring internships! Please contact Lily (email@example.com) with any questions. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but for best consideration please apply by 9 A.M. on November 16.
