Grant Description
Internships to Georgia post-secondary students or graduates with an interest in local agriculture. The purpose of the internship program is to enable participants to gain experience and mentoring in the field. A wide range of agriculture-related positions are available including those involving administration, agricultural inputs, animal industry, communication, emergency management, finance, food safety, fuel and measures, human resources, information technology, laboratory, legal services, licensing, marketing, plant protection, and structural pests.

The Georgia Department of Agriculture has hosted dozens of interns in various sections within the Department’s oversight. These students come from several Georgia universities and colleges, studying majors both directly and indirectly related to agriculture. The Department looks forward to expanding and promoting its internship program.

Internship positions are primarily based out of the Department’s headquarters building in Downtown Atlanta. There may be additional positions at the Tifton Laboratory, which serves as the Department’s South Georgia base of operations. 

Duties: Internship opportunities with the Department may include, but are not limited to: providing administrative and office support; giving guest tours of the Department headquarters and Tifton Lab facilities; shadowing and working with field officers during agriculture inspections; laboratory studies, research, and testing; promoting and assisting with Department activities and Georgia Grown products and marketing events; and generally serving as an advocate for Georgia agriculture.
