Compensation: This is a paid internship. Attendance at the P.J. Boatwright, Jr. Intern Orientation conducted by the USGA is required and those expenses are paid. VGA uniform apparel is provided.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
