Undergraduate Internship Opportunities

The Center seeks applicants for undergraduate internship positions several times per year (typically fall, spring, and summer).  CCED interns work on various community and economic development projects, as well as the annual Community Development Institute (CDI). Responsibilities include research assistance, marketing assistance, database management, and clerical support. An abundance of professional development and networking opportunities are made available to the Center’s interns. Desired candidates will have strong written and oral communication skills and be able to operate appropriately in a professional work environment. Ability to complete work by prescribed deadlines and attention to detail are important. A background in Public Administration, Political Science, Geography, Communications, Graphic Design, or Business is preferred, but not required.


Interns gain professional office experience, learn about the field of community and economic development, and have access to various networking opportunities with Arkansas leaders as well as many others from all across the United States.
