Internships

COVID-19 Information

Due to the continued outbreak of COVID-19 in most areas of the world, including the state of Nebraska, the University of Nebraska discourages students from participating in in-person experiential learning activities during the summer of 2020. Students who choose to participate in in-person activities this summer are aware of the potential risks that exposure to the novel virus poses to their health and safety, that the University of Nebraska is unable to mitigate those risks, and that participation in those in-person activities does not create any liability on behalf of the University of Nebraska. The University encourages students to work directly with any non-University organizations through which the student will be completing in-person experiential learning activities to explore methods of completing those activities through remote or other non in-person means. The University encourages all students to know, understand, and follow the guidance from local governments and local health departments in the area where students may be participating in in-person activities, particularly since that guidance can change rapidly.


Internships provide professional and applied learning experiences with opportunities to network with knowledgeable professionals. Whether required or optional for your major, the experience will propel your career. Students who may experience financial hardship due to completion of an internship are encouraged to complete the Internship Stipend Application. Get started on the path to obtain and complete an academic internship.
