Internships - How to apply

Remember to apply for internships early. Our summer intern recruitment begins in the fall and the internships begin to fill up at that time.

Internship Project

Agtegra Interns will complete a project related to their field of study. Managers work with the intern to find a project that will benefit the company and help the intern learn. For example, a project may concentrate on the nutrient requirement variations in corn, while other projects can include working with vendor accounts to receive outstanding credits or assisting with yield estimates.

Each Intern will present their project at the Internship Wrap-Up Event  to their intern peers, managers, and leadership team.

Intern Scholarship

Paid internships are an excellent way to assist with school expenses, especially with the opportunity to work overtime! Interns may also earn up to $750 in scholarship money upon the completion of their summer internship.
