CAL internships provide an opportunity for qualified individuals interested in language, linguistics, language testing, and related areas to gain experience working with CAL professional staff. Interns gain hands-on experience working on projects and build professional connections.

CAL posts available internship opportunities on this page. Internships may take place at any time during the year, but many occur during the summer months.

  • There is no minimum or maximum length of service.
  • Internships may be remote or in person depending on the project.
