The World Food Prize Foundation is seeking applicants for the George Washington Carver Internship, a program designated to provide promising young professionals with an in-depth foray into future career skills and the World Food Prize Foundation’s mission. Applications are due by Feb. 29.

GWC interns are paired with a staff mentor and are given the opportunity to take significant responsibility in developing, planning and executing projects integral to the future of the World Food Prize Foundation. Through this experience, GWC interns cultivate the necessary skills to navigate an international organization, while connecting with World Food Prize Laureates, government officials, industry leaders, business owners and experts in their respective fields.

The internship is flexible to successfully accepted candidates’ schedules, but a minimum commitment of 16 hours per week is required between May 20 to Aug. 16. In addition, the internship is paid, offering a $1,500 stipend to interns. More information and how to apply can be found at
