The CAMP Scholars Internship program is a collaboration between University Housing & Dining Services and the College Assistant Migrant Program (CAMP), and was created to ensure that young students with a history in migrant or seasonal agricultural work develop their personal and professional potential. The CAMP Scholars Internship (CSI) program combines leadership training with hands-on and practical intern experience during the academic year.
The College Assistance Migrant Program is a federally-funded program designed to support students whose history includes migrant/seasonal agricultural work. The program provides financial and academic support to first-year students with the goal of preparing them for further success in college. This national program has been providing student support since 1972 and exists at many colleges and universities across the nation.
Each year, CAMP Scholar Interns (CSIs) work in specific University Housing & Dining Services (UHDS) units based on an attempt to match student interests with organizational needs. The internship consists of ten hours of work, including meetings and other active program experiences which will provide an opportunity for the CSI’s to develop and practice skills that help them succeed as students and community members of Oregon State University and meet the learning outcomes of the program.
