Diabetes Self-Management Blog

Are you a full-time college or graduate school student living with Type 1 diabetes? Are you interested in working with and learning from leaders in the diabetes community? Then you may be interested in checking out the Students With Diabetes Internship program.

Students With Diabetes is an organization founded by former Miss America Nicole Johnson, who also happens to have diabetes, to “create a community and connection point for young adults with diabetes ages 18–30 on both college campuses and in local communities across the country.” The group is offering internships in a variety of sectors within the diabetes community, including nonprofit management, research, sales, marketing, and advocacy, to provide young adults living with diabetes the skills necessary for a career in the field.

At least 12 internships will be awarded. Requirements for participation include being a full-time college or graduate student between the ages of 18 and 25 who has been living with Type 1 diabetes for at least one year. Interested parties must submit an application (available for download here), a letter of support from a health-care provider, a letter of recommendation from a professor or employer, proof of academic enrollment, and a resume. Applications are due by February 1, 2013, and awards will be announced on March 15, 2013.

For complete information on the internship program, visit the Students With Diabetes Web site.
