CAST's internship program provides interns with opportunities to supplement academics with real-world, career-building experiences. CAST internships empower interns to pursue their own interests while developing their knowledge of UDL, and building relationships with people actively working in the field of education.
CAST values the contributions that interns make to our innovative capacity and knowledge base. Therefore, in addition to the project work that interns do, interns are included in meetings and other events that include training, brainstorming sessions, guest speakers and project presentations.
At the end of the internship, CAST provides interns with a letter of completion, which includes a formal description of the projects they contributed to and the work they completed. In addition, interns may qualify for a $575 stipend after the completion of 150 hours of work.
