JIFSAN Internships

Internship Projects

The JIFSAN internship program allows undergraduate students at the University of Maryland, College Park to participate in research at FDA facilities, including the Harvey Wiley Building in College Park and the MOD1 & MOD11 facilities on Muirkirk Road in Laurel, MD. Internships require a time commitment of 8-10 hours/week during the semester and 30 hours/week during winterterm and summer. After 100 hours as an unpaid intern, JIFSAN interns become eligible to compete for a paid internship for subsequent semesters.

Internship applications are available online or from the College of CMNS Internship Office (1313 Symons Hall). Internships generally begin in the summer and continue through the subsequent academic year. At the current time, projects seeking interns are posted in February and for best consideration applications should be submitted by March 15.
