UPDATE:

Out of consideration for students affected by college campus closures, BSNC is extending its internship application deadline from March 27 to April 24. BSNC will hire 2020 interns on a rolling basis. Early applicants will be interviewed between April 6-10 and will be notified on whether they have been selected by April 20. Applicants who submit applications after March 27 will be interviewed between May 4-7 and will be notified whether they have been selected by May 8. The BSNC Summer Internship Program is still scheduled to start on May 18.

BSNC is helping prepare tomorrow’s leaders for the workforce by providing paid internships and professional development training each summer to qualified shareholder or descendant students enrolled in college or technical school. Shareholders and descendants can gain valuable work experience and skills by working with staff in their professional area of interest in Nome and Anchorage.
