Internship Registration

  1. Complete the online internship application by clicking the ‘Apply Now’ link below. Approved Internship experiences typically provide students with progressively challenging work activities and significant learning opportunities related to their major, supported by an organization that provides a solid orientation, training, supervision, and feedback along the way.
  2. Leta Salazar will email you to let you know if your internship application is approved. Once you have been notified you can proceed to Step 3.
  3. Send an email to your internship contact. View a sample email. In this email you will also send a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). See instructions in step 4.
  4. Fill out the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and have your internship contact sign the form on the last page of the MOU.  View a sample MOU. Before you are granted Permission of Department to register for your internship in AAEC 3910, ENVM 3910, HFIM 3910, HFIM 3912, HFIM 3913 or HFIM 3914, the MOU must be signed first by your internship supervisor at the internship site.
  5. Once your internship contact has signed the MOU, upload it to https://secure.caes.uga.edu/CAESScholarships/.
  6. Leta Salazar will send the MOU to three other departments and UGA office of Legal Affairs for signatures before it can be officially approved. You can’t register for AAEC 3910, ENVM 3910, HFIM 3910, HFIM 3912, HFIM 3913 or HFIM 3914 until the MOU is officially approved. Additionally, you cannot begin working at your internship site prior to the MOU being officially approved.
  7. Once the MOU has completed the routing process and been approved by the UGA office of Legal Affairs, you will be cleared to register for your internship course. Leta Salazar (leta.salazar@uga.edu) will let you know when you have been granted Permission of Department.
  8. Once registered, email your instructor (Octavio Ramirez, John Bergstrom or John Salazar) to let them know you have registered. They will then send you any necessary materials and instructions.

Application Deadline: November 1, 2021
The Program Coordinator for your major (Hospitality & Food Industry Management, Agribusiness, Agricultural & Applied Economics or Environmental Economics & Management) will make the approval decision with regards to internship applications. Approved Internship experiences typically provide students with progressively challenging work activities and significant learning opportunities related to their major, supported by an organization that provides a solid orientation, training, supervision, and feedback along the way. It is important to consider internships with companies or organizations that will hopefully result in making connections with professionals or better yet, turn into full-time jobs after graduation.
