The University of Wyoming’s Growing Internship Program for beginning farmers and ranchers seeks prospective hosts and interns for summer 2023.

The 10-week internships pair those eager to get started in agriculture with experienced producers across the state. 

The University says the goal is to help beginning farmers and ranchers obtain the hands-on experience and skills required to successfully manage their own operations.

Applications for both interns and hosts are due Friday, Feb. 3. 

The Growing team will continue to review applications on a rolling basis after this deadline, but placement is not guaranteed.

Interns must be 18 years or older and identify as ready to begin farming or ranching and/or have been involved in farming or ranching for less than 10 years.

In addition to participating in daily activities on their host ranch or farm, interns are required to attend at least one educational event, such as the Wyoming Stock Growers Association summer meeting or a UW Extension workshop.

Interns who also are degree-seeking students are encouraged to pursue academic credit for participation in the program.

Program hosts provide a safe, educational internship experience as well as adequate housing and meals. 

The Growing Internship Program awards each intern a $5,000 stipend as compensation for their work.
