This form is designed to give organizations and businesses opportunity to register and obtain additional information about the process and expectations of establishing internship partnerships with CSS. Please also see our website, http://socialsciences.hawaii.edu/access/engagement/internships, for the broader context.
For non-profits and businesses, internships provide fresh perspectives on services, processes, and products. It is a great opportunity to see the world through the eyes of the next generation, and potentially build advocates for your mission or business.
Credit requirement: If the student do not enroll in a course that can give her or him credit for the internship, any internship arrangements will be entirely between the student and the organization.
The CSS Internship Program staff will actively and creatively recruit for open positions, but due to the dynamics of our program, we cannot guarantee a compatible match for your organization's internship at any given time.

CSS will advertise your internship and encourage students to apply. Typically, students seeking internships are in good academic standing and demonstrate leadership skills and accountability. For internships, you may want to specify requirements such as minimum GPA, field of study, level of education, length of internships, etc. See (2) and (3) above.
