Live. Serve. Play.
Rural Futures Institute Student Serviceship connects communities to University of Nebraska (NU) students and students to rural communities, leaders and mentors.
A hybrid between service learning and traditional internships, “serviceships” provide communities with tangible results on important self-defined projects while giving students resume-building work and insight into the career and life opportunities in rural places.
The Rural Futures Institute (RFI) provides support and guidance throughout this experience, and all participants learn and share on behalf of rural community growth.
2017 Host Communities & Priority Projects
The host communities are looking for students with interests and career aspirations in the following areas and related fields:

A two-week course will prepare you to take on these important projects, giving you a general understanding of rural communities as well as leadership strategies. Then you will spend nine weeks in a community leading the project and helping with other community activities.

- Housing, office space and materials provided free of cost
We are currently reviewing student applications for the 2017 serviceship experience. If you applied, you will be contacted soon.
