Letter Of Refusal For An Internship

What should I do if I am offered multiple internships and have to turn down one or more offers?

If you have been offered an internship by more than one organization, it will be necessary to choose one and accept the position. At the same time, it will also be necessary to inform the organizations whose internships you do not accept that you will not be interning with them. The most appropriate way to do this may be with a phone call or a letter. The following letter is a sample and should be modified to suit your particular situation.

Mr. James Jones, Air Controller
American Airlines
Suite 747 JFK Airport
New York, New York 10019

Dear Mr. Jones:

I am writing to inform you that having given careful consideration to your offer of an internship, I have decided not to accept the position. I was fortunate to have received another offer which better suits my educational and career interests.

Thank you for the time and consideration you have given me. I appreciate it very much and regret not being able to accept your offer at this time.
