The UT Extension office is seeking candidates for a 10-week summer internship program. In order to be considered, candidates must be a member of a racial or ethnic minority group.
Dates for the internship are May 23, 2014 to August 1, 2014.
The student will be assigned to a county extension office for the entire 10 weeks of the internship.
To be considered, candidates must be enrolled in a college of agriculture, family and consumer sciences, education or closely related major; should have completed approximately 50 percent of the required course work for the Bachelor's degree with a cumulative GPA of 2.7 (on a 4.0 scale) or higher, or must be a graduate student.
Preference will be given to students presently enrolled in a Tennessee university or a resident of Tennessee. Preference will also be given to those with Extension program experience (i.e. former 4-H member, etc.). However, all eligible applicants will be considered. Students should be considering Extension as a future employment option.
Additional requirements must be met, including proof of residency in the county of the internship.
For best consideration, applications for the internship should be submitted on-line to Dr. Herb Byrd, III by April 18, 2014. Applications received after this date will be reviewed if all slots have not been filled.
Apply on-line at ext1.ag.utk.edu/Employment/Jobs.
