Other Information

The North Carolina Internship Program is historically quite competitive. The North Carolina Internship Council screens all eligible applications and selects students for interviews with project supervisors. All interviews are conducted by phone. Interviews will begin on February 27, 2019 and conclude on March 11, 2019. After interviews, applicants and supervisors submit a preference form, ranking their preferred projects/applicants. The Internship Council and The Council for Women & Youth Involvement office make the final match for projects based on student and supervisor preferences, student demand for a project, departmental and geographical distribution of projects and other relevant factors. State government policy prohibits discrimination based on race, sex, color, creed, national origin, age or disability. If you require accommodations in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, contact the Council for Women and Youth Involvement at (919) 733-2455 or (919) 807-4407. Placement in an internship will be contingent upon completing required employment eligibility forms and, if applicable, satisfactorily completing additional screening procedures required by the Department in which you will be working.
