Student Conservation Association Internships


Working closely with the National Park Service and the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the Student Conservation Association (SCA) has 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 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
  • Open-minded, with an adventurous spirit
  • Not necessarily experienced in conservation, but eager to learn more – all majors are welcome

Students participating in either of these programs will have their SCA application fee waived. Email to let us know you are applying and request a fee waiver.
