Nebraska Corn is Now Accepting Applications for Seven College Internships

interns-2016LINCOLN, NEB. – Nebraska Corn is now accepting applications for seven internships starting in May 2017. Qualified college students will have the opportunity to apply for internships hosted in Lincoln, Nebraska, across the United States and internationally.

Two opportunities are year-long internships in the Nebraska Corn Board (NCB) and Nebraska Corn Growers Association (NeCGA) offices in Lincoln. The balance of the internships will be during the summer, located in NCB cooperator offices across the United States. These cooperators include: the National Corn Growers Association in St. Louis, Missouri and Washington, D.C.; the U.S. Meat Export Federation in Denver, Colorado; and the U.S. Grains Council in Washington, D.C. The international internship will most likely to be with the U.S. Grains Council in the Panama City, Panama office.

“Through partnerships with our national cooperators, Nebraska Corn is able to offer one of the best internship programs in the state,” said Emily Thornburg, director of communications at NCB. “We offer a diverse group of opportunities, with the focus ranging from public policy, to marketing and communications and international relations. I would encourage any college student hoping to excel in an agricultural focused career to apply for these internships.”

Applications are due to the Nebraska Corn Board office by 5pm on Friday, October 21, 2016. To apply for an internship or to learn more about the program, click here.
