Some internships may be closed. Please refer to the organization’s web page for up-to-date postings and opportunities.

The application deadline for Summer 2018 is Feb. 16, 2018.

Since 1992, HACU has offered one of the best internship programs in the country. We believe that participation in an internship is an invaluable opportunity to gain hands-on work experience, but internships offered through many other organizations often come at a price, whether monetary or otherwise. 

To honor our commitment to providing equal access to such opportunities, the HACU National Internship Program offers many additional benefits which offset or eliminate many common costs of taking part in an internship.
