ACF seeks applications from highly motivated individuals who are interested in furthering their education and experience in conservation, environmental justice or another closely related field and are willing to make a long-term commitment to preserving and protecting the pristine environment and diverse cultures of Alaska.
You are eligible to apply for a conservation internship if you meet any of the following criteria:
- You are currently enrolled as an undergraduate or a graduate student in an accredited college or university in the United States or in an accredited institution abroad.
- You have recently graduated from an accredited college or university in the United States or an accredited institution abroad.
- You will be enrolled in an accredited college or university in the United States or in an accredited institution abroad by spring or summer 2011. (Please note: preference for internship placements is given to rising college juniors and seniors, recent college graduates and graduate students.)
- You are an international student or recent college graduate legally authorized to work in the United States.
ACF is an equal-opportunity organization.
Conservation internship applications will be accepted through our online application process starting on December 10, 2010 and ending at midnight on February 14, 2011. The online application will be available here.
Please do not send your resume to ACF for review prior to submitting your formal application. Resumes should only be submitted as part of a complete application packet. ACF is not able to respond to inquiries or applications consisting of only a resume (whether submitted by a career center or an applicant).
Historically, application packets have required answers to three brief essay questions, two letters of recommendation from professors, advisors or other individuals who can speak to your commitment to the environment, a resume, and an unofficial transcript.
