Learn at the Garden

Student Directorship

The Allen Centennial Garden offers excellent professional opportunities to gain practical experience, learn career skills, and study in a premier display garden.

Each Student Director specializes in one of our management areas. Opportunities range from 3 or 12 months with some areas of specialization only being offered for 12 months.

Student Internships
