The benefits of being a part of the FYE Squad include having opportunities to work in a collaborative team while harnessing your leadership skills and participating in professional development opportunities throughout the internship. You also will gain great experience in public speaking, marketing, and project management.

The internship will consist of a maximum of 10 hours a week at $15.50/hr for the entire 2021-2022 academic year. The deadline to apply is Friday, May 14th.
