The Knoll hires Middlebury College students as Interns for the summer and the academic year. Our hiring process for each growing season begins in January. Academic year positions start in the spring and continue into the following fall.
About Knoll Internships
The Knoll Spring/Fall Internship is offered as a work study position starting ~ April 1 through spring final exams, and resuming at the start of fall classes through ~ November 1. Interns primarily help support Garden Volunteer Hours and receive training to help host Outdoor Kitchen and other events.
The Knoll Summer Internship is designed as an intensive 15-16 week, four-six person cohort-based experience. Interns learn about and come into relation with all aspects of care, management, and programming for the Knoll’s 1-acre educational garden and 3-acre site. We work closely with on- and off-campus community partners and explore the rich fabric of our community foodways.

Who can apply to Knoll Internships?
Both Knoll internships are available to current Middlebury College undergraduate students who are on campus for Spring ’23 and plan to return in-person for Fall ‘23. The spring/fall position is intended to follow the arc of the season, beginning in the spring and resuming again the consecutive fall semester, so seniors planning to graduate in Spring ’23 will not be considered.
Summer internships are available to currently active Middlebury College undergraduate students. As with most summer employment opportunities at the college, the position is not open to graduating seniors.
The Knoll, as a part of Middlebury College, is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, age, religion, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, political orientation, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local law. We strongly encourage applications from people of color, people from working class backgrounds, women, LGBTQIA people, or those who are members of other marginalized communities. Data shows that women and BIPOC candidates more frequently do not apply to a job because they don’t feel that they meet all of the qualifications listed. Our job descriptions are general overviews, not a mandatory comprehensive list. If you have great peer leadership skills, feel passionate about our efforts, and believe that you have the skills to succeed in this role, we want to hear from you!
