Locations for internships are selected by the Center for Community Work and Learning (CWL) from a pool of applications submitted by organizations before the semester starts. You get to choose which of these internships you apply to; however, Career Ready Internships cannot be completed at organizations outside of those selected by CWL for the semester. Each semester we select a diverse range of internship opportunities relevant to a variety of student majors.
