Internships & Clerkships
Nebraska Appleseed routinely has 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 and we open the hiring process once each semester. 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 our internship program. Our Spring 2021 intern application will be open from November 15th-22nd. Please check back then to apply.
If you have any questions, please email our Sr. Program Associate, Erin Pixley, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nebraska Appleseed clerkships are full or part time positions open to current law students that provide opportunities to experience a wide variety of public interest law. Law clerks will do research, legal writing, litigation support, assist with administrative appeals and advocacy and conduct public policy research and analysis. Law clerks work directly under the supervision of Nebraska Appleseed Staff Attorneys allowing them to get one on one attention and direction.
