Job Openings

Thank you for your interest in joining Nebraska Appleseed’s staff! Currently, we do not have any open staff positions at this time. Check back on this page in the future for new opportunities that arise.

Nebraska Appleseed is an equal opportunity employer. People of color, members of the LGBTQ community, individuals with disabilities, and those from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Nebraska Appleseed does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, ethnic background, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, or disability.

Internships & Clerkships

Nebraska Appleseed routinely has paid positions for interns and law clerks to help support our work. If you are interested in being a law clerk or intern please complete our electronic application form and attach a cover letter and resume. Apply below for Law Clerk and Intern positions.


The Nebraska Appleseed Internship Program is a hands-on way to learn about nonprofit and advocacy work in Nebraska.

Our internships are part-time, paid positions working at most 10 hours per week. We require all interns to have access to a personal computer and internet access. Interns may work to conduct research projects, assist with advocacy and public policy work, help with community outreach and education, and provide general office support. Interns work directly under the supervision of a program and/or support manager.

Below you can find the approximate time frames our applications open for each semester and when applicants are notified of a decision. Visit this page or follow our social media accounts to see when specifically our intern program applications open.

Spring: Application opens middle of November and decisions go out mid-December
Summer: Application opens middle of March and decisions go out mid-April
Fall: Application opens middle of July and decisions go out mid-August

If you are doing the internship for school credit through your institution and need a decision by a date sooner than what our time frame states, please apply a semester early and indicate in your application that you are applying for the following semester and provide the notification deadline for your institution. While Appleseed-paid internships are no more than 10 hours per week, interns who will be paid through another institution (a program through your school, for instance, or an unpaid program in return for college credit) may be able to work more hours per week, based on the needs of Appleseed and their external program.

We are not currently accepting applications for Internships.

If you have any questions, please email our Sr. Program Associate, Erin Pixley, at
