Summer Internships in the West
In the summer of 2009, Annemarie Golz (second from left) tagged trout and studied water quality for the Henry's Fork Foundation in eastern Idaho, an internship suggested by Nelson Ishiyama, a member of our Advisory Council (Photo: Henry's Fork Foundation)
Every summer the Bill Lane Center for the American West offers a multitude of opportunities for undergraduates and graduating seniors to work with organizations throughout the West exploring careers in natural history, conservation, land use, museum curation, resource management, and related fields.
Since 2005, our offerings have grown from five internships to over twelve, diverse opportunities with organizations dedicated to tackling the abundant environmental, economic, and social challenges facing the region.
Internships are 10 weeks (exact dates may be negotiated with the host organization) and compensated with stipend to help cover living expenses, including housing, transportation, and food.
Applications are now closed for Summer 2013. Summer internships are posted at the beginning of winter quarter and applications are due in the beginning of February.
