Center for Fair & Alternative Trade

Colorado State University
Internships

To assist undergraduate students in locating an outstanding internship experience, the Center for Fair & Alternative Trade has compiled a list of potential sites. While this list is by no means complete, we include a variety of organizations and companies that are working to promote fair and alternative trade, sustainable enterprise, and global-local social justice. The groups listed below have indicated an interest in working with Sociology undergraduate students to complete their 150-hour internship requirement. While many of these entities are based in Fort Collins, we have more broadly included organizations located in other states. Some of these offer remote internships, but others require students to relocate to these areas for the duration of the internship.

It is your responsibility to contact a possible group to request an internship and negotiate the terms of agreement. The entities listed below retain the right to hire interns at their own discretion, and there is no guarantee of an opening when you apply. It is impossible to maintain the most up-to-date information; thus we encourage you to conduct your own internet search of these and other groups of interest. We also urge you to research internship opportunities well in advance, and to contact multiple potential sites so that you may find the best fit and gain the most from your experience. For more information about the Sociology internship program requirements and registering for the Internship (SOC487) and Internship Seminar (SOC492), please visit the Department of Sociology’s webpage at http://sociology.colostate.edu/undergraduate/internships.
