Spring 2020 VSVS Board Internship Application
The one-semester board internship is designed to provide exposure to the various board committees and is required prior to applying for board. Interns will participate in a selected subset of board activities and attend board meetings (see below for a general breakdown of the board structure). As an intern, you can expect to spend about 1 hour per week in the lab in addition to being a team leader. At the end of the spring semester, interns will have the opportunity to apply for VSVS board. The board will evaluate all candidates based on their applications, internship experience, and abilities to contribute to the next year’s VSVS Board. Freshmen, sophomores and juniors with an interest in joining VSVS board are highly encouraged to apply for the internship. We are looking for dedicated interns who can make VSVS one of their primary commitments outside of class. By choosing to be a VSVS Board Intern, you will be making a commitment to VSVS, and we hope that you will apply for VSVS board after the internship.
Please complete this application by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, November 3rd, 2019. Type your responses to the questions below. Finalists will be invited for interviews before the end of the semester.
Thank you for your interest in VSVS! We look forward to your application.
