Subject: Paid Internships w/FAHE this summer - please share with students

Hello All,


I am reaching out this morning to share three wonderful paid internships that your students may be interested in.  I received these three calls from Tina Parker, FAHE Research and Development Specialist ( or 859.986.2321 ext. 2108).  Any questions about these opportunities should be addressed to Tina.  Again, these are not funded by the Appalachian Center – these are independent internships funded by FAHE. 


Take Care
