SCA Conservation Internships
August 18, 2008
Continuing with a theme from earlier in the month, this week's scholarship of the week also presents students with a source of funding for travel. Rather than a study abroad scholarship award, this week's feature is an expenses-paid internship opportunity that allows students to work in any region of the United States. It's also one of the many green scholarships and internships available in our database. The Student Conservation Association (SCA) conservation internship programs allow students in a wide variety of disciplines to participate in internships lasting anywhere from 12 weeks to 12 months. Dozens of internship opportunities exist, allowing students to do work ranging from public relations to environmental education to trail maintenance and repair.
In addition to free housing, a living allowance, and an Americorps stipend, students participating in SCA internships can also earn college credit. For students considering environmental careers or future nonprofit work, this internship can be a great way to gain experience, start networking, and get a better idea of what you want to do in your field while earning college credit.
An internship in your area of study with free housing, a weekly living allowance, and the opportunity to also receive an Americorps stipend and college credit for your work.
