Externship Application Deadlines

Applications are now open for Spring and Summer Externships. Students interested in applying to externships must email a completed Externship Application Form (PDF) to the Externship Program Office and begin the process of applying to at least three sites by the first contact deadlines below. If any of the externship seminars fill before the deadline, we will close the application process for those related sites. We recommend you begin the application process as soon as possible so that you are able to save yourself a spot in the seminar of your choice. Many programs have alternative deadlines.

Spring 2023 Dates

If you are interested in a spring externship, fill out the online Externship Application Form and send it to us before November 28.
