This program will take place in Kosrae, Micronesia, from August 22

The Student Conservation Association (SCA) is excited to offer two career preparatory programs for students from racially and ethnically diverse backgrounds. Working closely with the National Park Service (NPS) and the US Fish and Wildlife Service, we’ve developed expense-paid internships aimed at providing students with the mentorship and hands-on experience needed to build a career in the conservation field.
Internships are offered in a wide variety of fields–education, historical preservation, resource management, visitor service, and many others–but they all have one thing in common: they promote social, personal, and academic development, and pave the way for professional success.
The Mary Gates Endowment for Students is currently accepting scholarship applications. Mary Gates scholarships provide $4,000 ($2,000 per quarter for two quarters) for students to pursue leadership or research activities. These scholarships benefit students in the current academic year, and are open to all UW undergraduate students regardless of class year, major or residency status. Deadlines are coming up soon, so begin the application process, attend an information session, and register for an application workshop.
Hope that you’re enjoying this sunny summer weather! The Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST) is beginning to recruit for interns for the autumn quarter.
Could you please spread the word to your students? An internship announcement is attached with a description of each area.
Students can obtain 2-3 college credits through COASST. Each credit requires 4 hours of work per week.

Do you love amphibians, science, and exploring National Parks? Then the Citizen Science Program is for you. The Citizen Science program gives volunteers the opportunity to hike and explore some of Mount Rainier’s remote lakes and wetland habitats while gaining experience in surveying and science.
Project description: We are seeking independent, motivated student volunteers that will be key members of a research team including scientists from the Northwest Fisheries Science Center and the University of Washington as we continue our long-term study (started in 2000) quantifying the recolonization of the Cedar River, WA by Pacific salmon. The Cedar River is a protected watershed providing drinking water for Seattle and is about 90 km east of the City.
