The Cornucopia Institute has internship positions, available year-round in short to long-term intervals, in both administration and research, and in policy work. Occasionally we will also request resumes for specific intern positions within our organization.

The internships typically run for three month intervals, but longer stretches are possible if interested.  Please send your resume and letter of interest, or questions, to [email protected].

“In a field that is ever expanding, it’s really difficult for students to be given that first ‘foot in the door’ experience that is necessary to continue. Through the internship program at the Cornucopia Institute, I was able to not only gain practical experience in the food studies field but also have a valuable internship to talk about on my resume. My internship with the Cornucopia Institute gave me an inside look into how a non-profit in the food studies field operates. It allowed me to understand vital functions of the non-profit process and be a part of something that I know will help to change US food policies one day.” – Casey Rogers
