The Valentine’s Bobby Chandler Internship program is generously funded by the Kip Kephart Foundation and the Henry Valentine Fund. This summer, up to five funded internships will be awarded. A minimum commitment of 150 hours is required and an honorarium of $1000 will be provided upon completion. Funded internships are open to students currently enrolled in college or graduate school as well as recent graduates (graduated within the last 6 months) seeking professional experience.  Students interested in not receiving funding are welcome to apply. Simply select your preference on the application. The deadline for funded and unfunded intern applications is Wednesday, March 1, 2017. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
