About the CIPA Internship Program

Experiential learning is an integral component of our educational strategy at CIPA. Our Fellows are expected to gain practical work experience in an area related to their concentration. Most do this by undertaking an internship during the summer between their first and second year of graduate study. If you would like to post in internship or to discuss setting up a CIPA-specific internship position, please contact Millie Reed the Career Management Coordinator.
