EUS Internship Program

EUS Internship Program
An internship can be a great stepping stone to a successful career. The EUS internship program encourages students to get out into the real world and do real work with local organizations in Red Hook, Kingston, Hudson, Poughkeepsie, and beyond.  These internship experiences provide meaningful work, training, connections to academic work, and organizational supervision. At the end of the Internship, students will present their experiences to faculty and other students--to pass on valuable information from EUS upperclassmen to EUS students planning their own internships.
