Every summer, the Bill Lane Center for the American West offers many opportunities for Stanford undergraduates (including graduating seniors) to work with organizations throughout the West. Through these internships, students can explore careers in natural history, conservation, land use, museum curation, resource management, and related fields.
This program is one of more than 450 Cardinal Quarter opportunities through which Stanford students pursue a full-time summer or quarter-long public service experience with Stanford support.
Internships are 10 weeks. Students will be compensated with a stipend to help cover housing, transportation, and food.
