Applications for the 2023 internship season have now closed.
Horticulture interns work in one or more of the Arboretum’s gardens or collections. A required internship project is presented to staff, volunteers, and stakeholders at the end of the internship. Interns also participate in professional development opportunities and educational field trips.
Interns are supervised by the Arboretum’s curators and horticulturists. Most internships are 3–6 months long and will begin in May 2023 (approximately). The National Herb Garden Internship is a year long. All internships are paid by either an hourly wage or stipend, depending on the position. Students are encouraged to arrange for college credit.
