The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is accepting applications for its summer internship program through April 20.
The program offers six-week, part-time, unpaid internships in the fields of engineering, planning, science, sustainability, law, community outreach and social media. Majority of the internships are located in downtown Albany.
“DEC’s summer internship program connects the capital region’s college students with opportunities to learn about future careers and garner professional experience,” DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos said. “By working closely with DEC’s engineers, scientists and other professionals, we hope that our interns are inspired to protect New York’s public health and the environment as the next generation of conservationists and dedicated public servants.”
Students must have completed at least two years of school. Read job qualifications for further requirements. Interns will be assigned to specific program areas such as public lands, air or water quality, fiscal and personnel management, legal counsel or environmental education.
