As an intern in one of our international development projects you could have the opportunity to travel to countries such as Ethiopia, Uganda, St. Kitts & Nevis, or China. It’s a great way to gain valuable experience while helping to bring agricultural knowledge and expertise to another country.

Typically, internships are offered during the summer months and opportunities vary from year to year.
