Internship Placements

Thank you for your interest in completing an internship with the Collins Center! 

Internships are placements made as part of an academic or professional training program, which usually consist of at least 10 hours per week.  If you are interested in an internship placement at the Collins Center, please submit your application at least 60 days before your internship would begin. You are welcome to submit applications earlier than this in accordance with the time frame designated by your program of study.

Please note that in order to facilitate the most effective internship experience, the Collins Center prioritizes applications from local universities and colleges within a 75 mile radius of Harrisonburg. This is to take full advantage of the academic supervisor's role in supporting the internship placement through regular in-person meetings with the Collins Center staff member assigned to oversee the intern. The Collins Center is also unable to facilitate an internship through online universities for this reason.

After we receive your application, you will be contacted about our current internship openings.  If you are invited to participate in an interview, you will be asked to bring a portfolio of your educational, training, volunteer, and/or professional experiences.

Internship placements for Fall 2017 are currently filled. The Internship application will be available for Spring and Summer 2018 positions beginning on September 20, 2017.
