AppalachiaCorps is a student internship program through the UK Appalachian Center and Center for Service-Learning and Civic Engagement that pairs students with opportunities for experiential learning in eastern Kentucky and the greater Appalachian region. AppalachiaCorps serves a three-fold purpose: providing students with unique work and learning opportunities, strengthening UK’s land-grant commitment to the Appalachian region, and building capacity and networks of relationships between Appalachian organizations.

The AppalachiaCorps program is currently accepting student inquiries regarding summer 2021 placements. Students must have the onboarding process completed by June 30th in order to be in the summer 2021 cohort. Preference will be given to students who can make their own arrangements/contacts with host organizations as resources and time is limited at the Appalachian Center to assist with those connections. 

The AppalachiaCorps student internship program is made possible by a generous grant through the UK Women & Philanthropy network.
