Deadline Approaching for KER Year-Long Internship ApplicationBy Kentucky Equine Research Staff · February 15, 2016
Are you interested in an internship with Kentucky Equine Research (KER)? All KER internship graduates can agree on one thing: their experience at KER prepared them for future work with horses.
Former intern and KER staff member Catherine Whitehouse, M.S., said, “My year-long internship with KER paved the way for me to obtain my master’s degree in equine nutrition from the University of Kentucky.”
The KER internship program offers the practical experience necessary to understand and implement research protocols, as well as hands-on work in the day-to-day running of an equine facility.
Internships at Kentucky Equine Research are open to university students or recent graduates who want to gain hands-on experience in equine nutritional research. Those who apply for the year-long internship can spend 12 to 18 months at the research facility in central Kentucky.
The 2016 application deadline for KER’s year-long internship is Tuesday, March 15. Find out more about the KER intern program.
