USCG Internships

U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary University Programs (AUP) Internships
Top performing college students that have demonstrated a commitment to their Auxiliary service and to the Coast Guard's core values of Honor, Respect and Devotion to Duty may apply to a select pool of Coast Guard internships. Students complete their work under the guidance of experienced professionals and an academic advisor from their school. Students may be eligible to earn college credit for their experience, depending on the policies of the individual school.

All currently-enrolled AUP students are eligible to apply for and complete an internship provided that they have achieved minimum Approval Pending (AP) Auxiliary membership status, obtain the recommendation of their AUP Unit Officer, and agree to participate in all aspects of the assigned Internship.
