The National Great Rivers Research & Education Center Summer Internships Program
Website and/or Calendar Links
Every year, NGRREC hosts a highly successful summer internship program for college sophomores, juniors and seniors. This prestigious program is a paid internship opportunity and gives students a chance to gain real experience in a variety of environmental careers such as ecological research, fisheries science, education, social science, and policy. At the conclusion of this internship, students present their project results to their fellow interns, research advisors, and invited guests at a professional, two-day Intern Symposium.
Each 10-week paid internship is managed by an advisor who is responsible for instruction, supervision, and mentoring of the intern, as well as the design of the summer project. Students receive up to a $5,000 (pre-tax) stipend for full participation in the 10-week program. Additionally, funding up to $1,000 is available to help offset some of the summer housing and/or transportation costs to the internship location.
The Project Summaries document outlines each of the 2019 projects, including a summary, location, and intern duties and responsibility for each project. Please note that students apply to the program, not a specific project. During the application process, students will select up to three projects of interest to assist in the matching process.
