Current Students 

Every year Luther alumni and friends of Luther sponsor internships over January term and again during the summer. The Career Center collects these opportunities throughout the year.  We list the J-TERM opportunities during October of each year.  The SUMMER opportunities are listed during April of each year. 

When the opportunities are listed, you can stop by the Career Center to pick up the application information.

Alumni and Friends of Luther

As part of Luther's Sesquicentennial Strategic Plan, the college has set a goal of increasing the number of students who participate in at least one internship prior to graduation. This goal would not be attainable if it were not for the incredible support that we receive from the Luther alumni network.

The following information is designed to provide you some information about hosting an intern, site expectations, as well as posting an internship with us.
