Students must participate in a 30-minute orientation in order to have access to the application.  There are four (4) orientations for students to choose from.  Click on the date to RSVP:
 
Students will receive the application after attending one of the orientation sessions above.  Applications will be due Sunday, November 11 at 11:59pm.  
After the student is matched with a host, the student will connect with their host via email to determine a day to shadow them during winter break.  Travel reimbursements will not be provided for this program.
The majority of questions about Intern for a Day's process and structure will be addressed during the mandatory orientation session.  For other questions or concerns, please email ifad@umd.edu.
Students who have already participated in Intern for a Day still need to attend one orientation session.

Director’s Financial Analysts are given the opportunity to hone analytical and problem solving skills while helping to make markets for consumer financial products work for Americans. Members of the Director’s Financial Analyst Program will experience diverse roles, responsibilities, and areas of expertise.
