Internships to USA, Canada, and International university students and recent graduates to address environmental issues in Alaska. International applicants must be pursuing a degree in an American institution and be eligible to work in the United States. Funding is intended for students who plan a career path in conservation and are willing to make a long-term commitment to preserving and protecting the pristine environment and diverse cultures of Alaska.

Undergraduate students, graduate students and recent grads participating in this popular internship program are provided with unique opportunities to:

  • Learn firsthand about Alaska’s magnificent natural environment and diverse cultures.
  • Gain important, practical job skills in the conservation field while also helping the host organization meet its conservation program goals.
  • Help preserve and protect Alaska’s pristine environment by working with one of the many host organizations addressing important Alaska conservation issues.
  • Meet and network with Alaska conservationists, agency personnel, local Alaskans and other interns from Alaska and across the nation.
  • Become mentors and sources of information for other students interested in Alaska conservation issues.
  • Obtain college credit (if approved by an accredited university).

The objective of the Ted Smith Conservation Internship Program is to match highly qualified interns with host organizations, providing interns with practical job skills and an introduction to conservation in Alaska while also supporting the organization in meeting its conservation goals. 

In 2020, Alaska Conservation Foundation is offering 15 different internships at a wide variety of organizations across the state.
