Summer Internships

Experience Life ‘Out West’

Archaeological Survey, P.C. Jake Frank, National Park Service

“Navigating this complex tension between archeology and enjoyment,” wrote Yellowstone intern Sandro Hall in our Out West blog for students, “and finding innovative ways to couple preservation with outreach is one of the joys of working at Yellowstone.”

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.

Internships are 10 weeks. Students will be compensated with a stipend to help cover housing, transportation, and food.

All Stanford undergraduates, graduating seniors, and co-terminal masters students are eligible to apply. For more information about our internship program, please visit our FAQs page.
