An internship is typically an opportunity to perform field work to gain practice for a career. Internships can be paid or unpaid. While the DAEE does not require an internship as part of its curriculum, they are encouraged.

A fellowship is a type of grant received to conduct either academic research or other professional work. Fellowships can be similar to internships in that they provide an opportunity to gain expertise in a professional field of interest. Fellowships are typically paid or provide some other type of monetary assistance (e.g., for housing, travel, etc.)

The DAEE provides some information about available opportunities. To view these opportunities, please visit www.montana.edu/econ/internships.html. MSU also provides career assistance through its Student Services office. For more information, visit www.montana.edu/aycss/careers.
