The University of Georgia Cooperative Extension offers semester-long internships to students enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program. Interns work with experienced county Extension faculty members across the state to see firsthand how the organization serves Georgia. Interns get hands-on experience in the field and office and are paired with an Extension agent in their preferred county or region whenever possible. Interns are supervised by their assigned Extension agent and internship coordinator Maria Bowie (based on the Athens Campus). Paid interns receive $455 per week, working roughly 40 hours per week over a 12-week period. Unpaid interns serve as program volunteers, and also receive worthwhile exposure to careers with UGA Extension and class credit as arranged through their home academic department. The UGA Extension internship program formally began in the early 2000s, serving over 100 college students and resulting in permanent placement of 20 county-based Extension faculty members.
