Thank you for your interest in the CSS Internship Program. We value internships highly as a way of bridging students academic experience with the world of work. Internships are integral to students' career and educational success.

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.

(1) Please visit our website (http://socialsciences.hawaii.edu/access/engagement/internships) for basic information about our program;
(2) Submit the registration and initial agreement form included here;
(3) Email your full internship position announcement to intern@hawaii.edu (we can assist you with the write-up if needed);
(4) Comply with requests for additional information and review materials that you will receive in our reply to your email (depending on the nature of the internship); and
(5) Approve our final entry for publication on our CSS website: http://socialsciences.hawaii.edu/access/engagement/internships/opportunities

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.

Is the work meaningful and appropriate for a college student?
Will there be sufficient learning opportunities?
Can you provide on-site supervision?
Are the required skills and responsibilities sufficiently challenging?

Please identify the overall organization and leader responsible for setting up an initial partnership agreement and eventually approving a Memorandum of Agreement between the partner organization/business and the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa's College of Social Sciences
