What is NMSI? 

The National Migrant Scholars Internship Initiative advocates for adaptive hiring practices that support Migrant Seasonal Farm Worker (MSFW) students who have participated in CAMP. NMSI facilitates the connection between students and employers and provides a pool of student candidates to employers. Additionally, NMSI identifies potential financial burdens that students may encounter during their internship and develops an Employer Agreement that directly supports the student. 

The National Migrant Scholars Internship Initiative supports three main components of an internship:  Financial Support, Experiential Learning, and Professional Development.
