2015 SUMMER INTERNSHIPS

The Illinois Corn Marketing Board is seeking applicants for three summer internship positions, and the Illinois Corn Growers Association is seeking applicants for one position. Please pass along this information to anyone that you feel would benefit from a summer-long experience at the IL Corn office.

The Illinois Corn Marketing Board, using checkoff dollars, and the Illinois Corn Growers Association feel it is important to support the professional development of college-aged youth that are interested in agriculture. It is both board’s desire that any intern participating in this program will leave with valuable experience, along with a genuine desire to serve the industry in their future career work.

Qualified applicants must be Illinois residents, have a driver’s license, and enrolled full time in a college undergraduate or graduate degree program.

Applications for the three ICMB internships are due February 14, 2015. The ICGA legislative internship application is due December 1, 2014.
