Interns with MEFC are offered unique opportunities to learn about all aspects of athlete development and evaluation, marketing, event management, and video production, while contributing extensively to the culture of football. Intern projects are designed to benefit both the Institution and complement the intern’s own interests, skills, and experience.
Eligibility & Qualifications
Internships are open to both undergraduate and graduate students. International students are welcome to participate however, interns coming from abroad will require appropriate visas to enter the United States.
No specific credentials or work experience is required. However, applicants should have a strong interest in MEFC’s Mission and in informal educational programming. Individual departments may be seeking additional qualifications; they can be found in the respective position descriptions below.
MEFC is not a degree-granting organization and therefore cannot award academic credit. However, interns can receive academic credit from their university or college for their internships and many U.S. colleges and universities will recognize academic work performed while interning at the Institution. We recommend that you contact your school’s registrar, or career planning office for more information. Credit arrangements should be made in advance with your school advisor and your internship supervisor. If there are special terms, conditions or requirements associated with earning credit, you will need to discuss these with MEFC before you arrive.
MEFC internship appointments are unpaid and do not offer stipends for housing or travel. Students are encouraged to apply for resources outside MEFC to support their internship; there are no internal sources of support available unless specifically listed.
