COVID-19 Update from AFE

The health and safety of our interns remain a top priority. While we encourage students to apply for these paid internship programs, we are evaluating the timing of all internships and will grant extensions as needed to ensure the safety of our host employers, their staff, and the interns as we continue to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19 and the Delta variant. If your business is looking for interns or you’d like to sign up to be a host, please contact AFE’s Program Coordinator, Candice Musgrove at
