How to Apply

  2. Review the internship qualifications to see if you are eligible to apply.

Students who are interested in being considered for an internship apply by submitting a cover letter describing why you are interested in the VCE internship program and why you would be a good candidate.

Unofficial transcripts will not be accepted.
