Agency Name

Fish and Wildlife Service


THERE IS NO FULL ANNOUNCEMENT ASSOCIATED WITH THIS OPPORTUNITY. The United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is an environmental Federal Agency with offices throughout the United States. Through onsite activities located at a variety of field stations, including national wildlife refuges, fish hatcheries, ecological services offices, and regional offices, college freshman and sophomores from culturally and ethnically diverse groups will be introduced to natural resource careers through hands on work with, and training by, natural resource professionals employed by the USFWS. Interns will participate in a week long orientation, before traveling to their field sites. The goal is to help develop a generation of conservationists from culturally and ethnically groups that reflect the American public. Each participant will be given the opportunity to serve in 12 week internships throughout the USFWS. Most assignments will be scheduled between May and August of each year. During the assignments, interns are introduced to various real-world conservation and rehabilitation activities such as invasive species management, habitat restoration, wildlife management, and public education and interpretation, communications, mixed with informal and formal training sessions directed by USFWS. The USFWS hereby invites submission of proposals from all potential sources willing and able to cooperatively administer a program for identifying and recruiting individuals or groups for assignments at various USFWS stations.
