Hello and welcome to the new school year!
I’m excited for all the new internships that will occur this year, and in order to help jumpstart the cycle, I revised the guided internship application so that it is easier to complete and more streamlined. While it essentially asks for the same information as previous, it does so in a more explicit fashion (text boxes, etc.). Let me know what you think about the new form.
The intent of this application form is to try to get as much detail clearly laid out ahead of time. Most proposals that we receive includes most of this kind of information already!
As the underlying purpose of the MIE Guided Internship Program is to create highly individualized opportunities for our interns, the application will be considered a draft until the internship actually begins. This will allow for flexibility while the internship is being developed for the intern.
Please note: Not all applicants will know the answers to every question prior to their internship beginning — THIS IS OK — the application is meant as a point of departure.

How to begin the guided internship process:
__ 1. Submit a Permission Request on PowerCampus for ‘MIE INT / Department / 01’ —this notifies me that you are intending to complete an application, so that I know to follow up with you.
__ 2. Fill out the application and name your file: MIE Internship Fall 2013 (or Spring 2014) – YourName.docx
__ 3. Email the application to email@example.com.
__ 4. Once I approve the student’s draft, I will approve his/her PowerCampus request, and s/he will need to ADD the internship to his/her schedule prior to the end of Add/Drop.
Fall Deadline: Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2013. Spring Deadline: Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2014.
Please submit your applications, even if incomplete, as soon as possible!
