The Landesa Internship and Fellowship Program seek to increase the number of people who have the capacity to strengthen land rights for the world’s poorest women and men. Landesa’s Internship and Fellowship Program provides first-hand experience with various elements of our work. Landesa hosts a full-time 10-week summer internship in its Seattle office. The open application period for the summer internship program is October through February. On a rolling basis, Landesa accepts applications for part-time fall, winter, and spring internships.
