Internship Sites

Ford students are required to complete an internship in the field of public service during their time at Albion College. Many students choose internships in area of politics, but many other types of public service internships are available and have been completed by our students. Some Ford students create their own internships (with the permission of the Ford director) in an area that is of special interest to them.
