At the Partnership, fellows are integral to the day-to-day operations, programs and activities of our organization. We value the contributions of fellows and work to provide relevant and useful experiences in return. Fellows are assigned substantive and meaningful work to support our wide variety of programs, events and projects to help revitalize the federal government by focusing on the people working in it. Fellows’ duties vary across the Partnership’s internal teams, but often include event planning and execution, conducting research, writing and preparing correspondence, and conducting outreach to external partners, such as government agencies and colleges and universities.

True to the Partnership’s emphasis on people, the fellows program incorporates opportunities for professional and personal growth through workshops and trainings specifically geared toward students and young professionals. We also strive to ensure a quality experience in terms of work and personal relationships throughout the fellowship term. Fellows also receive the following stipends:

  • Full-time fellows with an undergraduate or graduate degree receive $1000 per month.
  • Full-time fellows who are currently undergraduate students receive $800 per month.
  • Stipends for part-time fellows will be pro-rated accordingly.

The Student Conservation Association is now accepting applications

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.

 

For more information about SCA or to search our other internship and program opportunities, please visit our website at www.thesca.org. We look forward to hearing from your students!
