Diversity Internship Program

Our Diversity Internship Program

Shelter's Diversity Internship Program began in 1988 and has seen terrific success over the years. Each year we've hosted intern classes of exceptional students from a variety of academic backgrounds. We have opportunities in claims branches throughout our 15-state operating territory and in several departments at our corporate office in Columbia, Missouri.
