It’s only October, but it’s not too early for college students to begin thinking about summer internship experiences. The Nebraska Corn Board (NCB) and the Nebraska Corn Growers Association (NeCGA) are seeking applicants to take part in seven internship experiences beginning in May 2021. The seven internships vary in location and scope, but are designed to provide students with an overview of Nebraska’s corn industry through real-world professional examples and experiences.

Five of the seven internships are summer-long experiences that are based outside of Nebraska. These five experiences are with cooperating partners of the Nebraska Corn Board. The remaining two positions are yearlong internships where students work in the NCB or NeCGA offices in Lincoln.

The Nebraska Corn Board is excited to announce its annual internship program for the 2020-2021 season. Through the last several years, the board has provided real-world experiences and opportunities for college interns. These students work directly with our partners with the U.S. Grains Council, the U.S. Meat Export Federation and the National Corn Growers Association.

Nebraska Corn internship opportunities for 2021-2022:

“We’ve been fortunate over the last several years to have some of the brightest young minds in agriculture taking part of our internship programs,” said Kelly Brunkhorst, executive director of NCB and NeCGA. “Through our internship opportunities, we’re able to work toward our mission of the Nebraska Corn Board, which is the promote the value of corn by creating opportunities. By empowering the next generation of ag leaders, we can ensure our industry is well served now and in the future.”

Nebraska Corn internships are open to all college students, with a preference given to students enrolled in colleges or universities located in Nebraska. The application process can be found online on our employment and internships page. The submission deadline is Friday, November 6, 2020.
