Each year, 30 to 40 community engagement internships, mentorships, student employees and capstone/master’s projects are developed through CEDaR, providing opportunities for students to assist a faculty member involved in a community engagement project or work directly on a CEDaR/GUB project.

The positions can be paid or unpaid, with or without credit. If offered for credit, students must register through an academic program. CEDaR internships, mentorships, jobs and capstone/master's projects are often rooted in faculty-student-partner cooperation around an applied research or community problem. A short written product is generated at the end of the internship describing the project and its results.
