We will notify applicants about selection as finalists by December 4, 2015 .

The second step of the selection process involves participation in interviews with members of the staff. Interviews will be held in person or via Skype the week of January 4 – 8th, 2016 . This internship site agrees to abide by the APPIC policy that no person at this training facility will solicit, accept, or use any ranking-related information from any intern applicant.
