JIFSAN is accepting applications for internships to begin in the summer
The JIFSAN internship program, a collaboration between the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration and the University of Maryland, has several positions
available beginning in the summer of 2014 and continuing through the
2014-2015 academic year. JIFSAN interns must have completed at least two
college semesters and be enrolled as undergraduate students at the University
of Maryland, College Park during the time of their internship.
Interns are expect to work part time (8-10 hours/week) during the academic
year and 30 hours/week during the summer of 2014. Current freshmen,
sophomores and juniors are encouraged to apply. Students who plan to graduate
in December 2014 are generally not eligible. After a 100-hour volunteer
commitment, interns are eligible for a paid internship at $10/hour.
The application form (in Word format) and more information about the program
can be found at http://jifsan.umd.edu/internship-program/. Complete
