Michigan Allied Poultry Industries (MAPI) is seeking college students to participate in its annual Summer Internship Program. Michigan’s poultry industry has many opportunities for individuals interested in animal science, farm management, feed and nutrition, logistics, and more.

The MAPI Summer Internship Program is a hands-on learning experience. Interns will receive on-farm training and learn in-depth skills. Most farms are vertically integrated and students will see operations at many levels. Students will train alongside a mentor and independently to develop skills while accomplishing daily tasks.

How the Program Works


A student fills out an internship application and submits to MAPI.


MAPI’s network of host farms will review all student applicants.


Farms will contact the student directly and set up interviews with potential candidates. Students may receive multiple inquiries. (MAPI will not be involved in hiring, logistics, compensation, etc. MAPI’s role is to help make the farm-student connection.)


At the completion of the internship, both the farm and the student will complete a survey about their experience.
