Student Internships

2014 DSS Summer Intern Program

DSS will not host a Summer Internship Program in 2014 due to fiscal restraints. DSS will reevaluate the feasibility of hosting a 2015 Summer Internship Program. DSS is currently conducting a 2014 Non-paid Student Volunteer Internship pilot program with the goal of expanding this program in 2015. Please refer back to this website periodically for further updates regarding both programs.
