Partnership Sites

If you are interested in an internship at one of the WWC partnership sites, following are some details you’ll want to know before applying. Our partnerships are noted on our website and OWLink, and we are continuously adding more sites. Not only are our partners eager and excited to employ Wilson students, we believe these sites provide positive and unique learning experiences that are hard to find elsewhere.

Application Process

First, take a look at OWLink or our partnership page to decide in what position(s) you are interested. As you search, please set up a meeting with Cristina Lawson, clawson@warren-wilson.edu, Internship Program Coordinator, to talk through the process and expectations.

The application process is unique for all of our partners, so look to their personal website and OWLink for specific information. Remember: the CDC is available to aid you through all of your internship search and application needs.

Once you have received an internship from one of our partners, you will be expected to commit to the following process:
