Internships & Assistantships
in Natural Resource Management


Internship Information

  • Students find an internship with a community organization of their choice and then apply for funding to cover their salary and other expenses for the duration of the internship (up to $5,200).

  • If the student is accepted, the community organization also receives a $1,000 honorarium.

  • The internship should provide the student with hands-on experience working with urban or rural communities on conserving local natural resources to meet their own needs, resolve conflicts, and preserve and revitalize their cultural resources.

  • The funds may be used to support a student in an internship either during the summer or during the school year.


Workshop: All interns must attend the annual Community Forestry & Environmental Research Partnerships Workshop held in the fall. This workshop includes research presentations by students and non-profits engaged in Community Forestry and CBNRM, a workshop on Participatory Action Research (PAR), and a field trip to a local CBNRM site. Travel expenses will be paid for by the program.

Application: The student must submit an application.
