Prior to their senior year, SFBS students work closely with their academic advisor to choose an internship project and location that incorporates their specific interests and career goals. Internships can vary widely in terms of duration, pay, location, and particular focus, but all are designed to provide you with some real-world experience working in your chosen career field. For example, past internship projects have focused on agricultural production, farm-to-school programs, alternative bioenergy systems, water rights, and food policy. Several students have been offered full-time jobs by their mentors upon completion of their internships.
