The Student Conservation Association

Internships are found 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.

Ideal candidates are:

  • US citizens or permanent residents
  • Undergraduate or graduate students during the 2016-2017 academic year who self-identify as being from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds
  • Available for a 12-week summer internship
