VT MARE Center Internship

What could be more fun than to intern on a horse farm, learn about our research here, and join in all the fun 4-H activities for the summer?! There is an internship available at Virginia Tech Middleburg Agricultural Research and Extension Center (MARE Center), a 420-acre equine research and education facility located in the heart of Virginia’s horse country. This is an immersive learning environment for those students who are sincere in their desire to secure employment in the equine industry and/or pursue post-baccalaureate education in graduate or veterinary school. This novel program provides substantive and authentic experiences that result in the ultimate equine internship experience. Interns will have the opportunity to be involved with ongoing research and Extension activities at the MARE Center. Current students may receive college credit if desired and will be responsible for tuition and fees. Transfer credits will be the student’s responsibility. Housing and utilities provided; students responsible for all other expenses. Start date May 21st, 2018 and exit date August 10, 2018.
