Summer Intern

The Knox County Farm Bureau Foundation is offering an internship with the Knox County Farm Bureau for the summer of 2018. The intern will receive a $1,500 scholarship and is encouraged to explore the possibility of using the internship to fulfill academic requirements for his/her major.

This is the 26th year for the program, which continues to be very successful. The internship is open to Knox County residents who will be a sophomore, junior, senior, or full-time graduate student at a college or university during the fall 2018 semester. Preference is given to applicants who have a farm background and/or are studying an agricultural-related field.
