Now Accepting Applications – Career-Building Internships with SCA

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.
