Environmental Internship Scholarship

The Environmental Internship Scholarship provides funding for a Conservation and Environmental Science major or minor to engage in a for-credit internship. Eligible students will have an internship related to environmental science or conservation lined up or in the process of being secured. The criteria are:

  • Plans for completion of a 3-credit internship at an organization with an environmental science or conservation mission
  • A declared Conservation and Environmental Science major or minor
  • Minimum 2.75 GPA
