The Austen Riggs Center is offering an opportunity for undergraduate students to take part in our Internship Program.

Internships are available throughout the year on a rolling basis; start/end dates and overall time commitment are negotiable per the applicant’s availability and scholastic schedule. Undergraduates focused on pre-medical, psychology, neuroscience, or related areas are encouraged to apply, though students from other academic disciplines will be considered. Internships are unpaid, and no housing or transportation is provided.
