2018 Spring Newsletter
Volunteer Intern Scholarship Program
The Muskingum SWCD will have three (3) Volunteer Internship positions available for summer 2018. This is an unpaid position, but if a student successfully completes the 10-week (200 hour) internship, they may be awarded a $1,000 scholarship.
Those interested in the Volunteer Internship position will need to complete an application, a resume of work and/or volunteer experience, and a short essay. A complete position description, application and requirements can be found at www.muskingumswcd.org.
The short essay needs to answer these three questions: 1) What are your long-term career goals? 2) What do you hope to gain from the internship? 3) Why are you a good candidate for the internship?
Applications, resumes, and essays must be received by Friday, March 16, 2018. Applicants should expect to hear from the MSWCD in April. Applicants may be requested to complete an in-person interview at the office.
