INTERNSHIPS / APPRENTICESHIPS

 

Go to dointernships.com to research internships available in many industries.



The Student Conservation Association (SCA) is excited to offer two career preparatory programs for students from racially and ethnically diverse backgrounds. Working closely with the National Park Service (NPS) and the US Fish and Wildlife Service, we’ve developed expense-paid internships aimed at providing students with the mentorship and hands-on experience needed to build a career in the conservation field. 

Internships are offered in a wide variety of fields--education, historical preservation, resource management, visitor service, and many others--but they all have one thing in common: they promote social, personal, and academic development, and pave the way for professional success.

Candidates must be:
  • US citizens or permanent residents
  • Undergraduate or graduate students during the 2014-2015 academic year
  • Available for a 12-week summer internship
  • Open-minded, with an adventurous spirit
  • Not necessarily experienced in conservation, but eager to learn more -- all majors welcome

Interested students can learn more at:

 

Students applying to either of these programs will have their SCA application fee waived. Ask your students to email recruiting@thesca.org to let us know they are applying. We are also available every Friday from 9am-5pm EST to chat via our online community, www.conservation-nation.org.
