CAHNRS Internships

From the classroom to the real-world

Each semester, CAHNRS facilitates an internship application process to partner students with world-class faculty internship mentors to create a unique hands on learning experience in Pullman or at our Research and Extension and County Extension locations.

CAHNRS Academic Programs, the Agricultural Research Center, and Extension have pooled funding resources to create opportunities for CAHNRS undergraduate students to have an immersion-based teaching, research or extension internship experience. Through this support over 30 paid internship experiences are offered to students each school year. Opportunities unique to CAHNRS have students from all majors utilizing what they learn in the classroom to solve real-world problems in fields related to their major. Faculty mentors are encouraged to submit proposals to receive funding to take on a CAHNRS student intern.
