When it comes to summer internships, GROWMARK is the industry expert. Our intern program has been growing and thriving since its inception more than 60 years ago! This program is jointly hosted by GROWMARK and participating member cooperative or subsidiary companies.

Recruiters hit campus in the fall and begin making selections early for this competitive program.

In our ten week spring or summer Exploring Agriculture internship, you will gain hands on experience in a retail agri-business environment. Our interns get exposure to industry and personal development training, professional networking opportunities, and practical hands-on experience; giving you the ability to make a direct impact at a farmer-owned cooperative.

You will earn while you learn in any of the following areas: crop scouting and real-time data collection through the use of technology, custom application of crop nutrient and protection products, sales and delivery of liquid propane and energy products, facility/equipment maintenance and repair, inventory control, business operation processes, customer service, and much more. Recruiters will be on campus in the late fall and applications will be accepted throughout the winter and early Spring.

The GROWMARK Job Shadow program provides freshmen or sophomore students at four year college or universities studying in an agriculture or business-related program; an opportunity to experience a day in the life of a professional agribusiness setting. You will become acquainted with business and product division operations and dive into career and internship opportunities within the GROWMARK System.

Participation in round table discussions and desk shadowing an individual in your career area of interest will provide invaluable employee networking opportunities. Applications for this program are accepted every fall semester.

Today's students are the future success of our industry and we feel that it is extremely important to invest in their education. The GROWMARK Foundation provides many scholarship opportunities to students who are furthering their education in an agribusiness or accounting program.

We provide a $750 scholarship to fourteen select Community Colleges in Illinois, Iowa, or Wisconsin for students that are enrolled in an agricultural program. For details on availability, the application process, and deadline students can reach out to the department faculty. Over $45,000 in scholarships are provided to University and 4-year college students studying agriculture or accounting. Students should contact the school's financial services office to inquire about availability, application process, and deadlines.

Additionally, the GROWMARK Foundation provides (15) $1,500 scholarships annually to high school seniors or continuing higher education students enrolled in community colleges, universities, or technical schools. Students must be pursuing an agriculture-related program of study. Details and application are available in January of each calendar year and scholarships are awarded for the upcoming Fall semester.

We encourage students to get involved in organizations on campus. It develops responsibility, communication, organization, and problem solving skills. All very important soft skills we look for in top candidates for internship and career opportunities. But, we know funding student groups can be a lot of work so we are proud to offer some financial peace of mind. We partner with select schools across our territory in the Midwest and Northeast to support development of students within agricultural student groups, their department networking events, and/or assistance with travel costs for competitions, and more.

Funding for Community College student programs is also available to support development opportunities. Click here to apply!

"I chose the GROWMARK Internship because it gave me the opportunity to directly apply what I have learned in my classes while also fostering my professional and personal growth. In my internship, I was able to grow in my teamwork and project management skills as well as in my self-confidence and love for this work."
Monica Clapp
2019 GROWMARK Supply Chain Intern

"I have learned everything from staging crops to operating machinery in fields for fertilizer applications. My favorite part of the internship was the variety of tasks assigned to me. I learned to sidedress corn for the first time. This internship helped me further my education and gain work experience to develop my agricultural career. One of the most beneficial parts of this internship is building connections with agricultural professionals that I may work with one day."
Travis Cook
2019 GROWMARK Exploring Agriculture Intern

"Through this internship I have learned so much more than I could have ever gathered in the classroom. I have been challenged to step out of my comfort zone and by doing so I feel as though I now am more marketable than I would have been before. Learning how to weigh trucks, scout fields, filling in while administrative assistants are on vacation, and the ultimate challenge - learning how to operate a forklift. I am very thankful to have had this wonderful opportunity and learn so many new skills."
