ACF’s conservation internships are designed to provide interns with a meaningful learning experience while directly contributing to Alaska conservation issues. Internship placements can be at nonprofit conservation, environmental justice, and Alaska Native organizations; government agencies; and other interested organizations that have identified assignments complementing ACF’s mission, values, and goals.
ACF is now accepting applications for the 2015 program. Applications are due February 13, 2015.
Internships are 12 weeks in length. Interns will participate in an orientation May 18-22, 2015 in Anchorage and a closing gathering August 6-7, 2015 in Anchorage.
ACF provides a grant to the host organizations which covers an intern stipend of $5,040. ACF will also reimburse travel costs to and from Alaska up to $1,400.
Host organizations will assist interns in finding low-cost housing for the summer.
ACF seeks applications from highly motivated individuals interested in furthering their education in conservation, environmental justice, or closely related fields, who are willing to make a long-term commitment to preserving and protecting the pristine environment and diverse cultures of Alaska.
