Become a CFE Volunteer

Interning with the Carlson Funds Enterprise is a non-credit, flexible experience in which students assist the research analysts with specific projects. Students can sign up to join our volunteer roster through the application link below. After joining the volunteer roster, we strongly recommend that you proactively reach out to the industry team(s) of your interest to offer help rather than waiting to be contacted with a project. You are considered a CFE volunteer once you are actively assisting a research analyst and/or industry team. Personal initiative is needed to become involved and fully take advantage of this learning opportunity.

All Carlson School students are welcome to join the volunteer roster, whether in a graduate or undergraduate degree program. If you are a student at another college within the University of Minnesota and would like to participate, please contact Olivia Starr at to discuss your interest and goals.
