Students: earn money and scholarships while working an "outdoorsy" internship

Jeff Chen, Student Conservation Association recruiter, will be at the University of Alaska Fairbanks in late October to inform students about expense-paid internships. He will give a presentation Monday, Oct. 27 at 6 p.m. in the Murie Auditorium. Students are encouraged to bring laptops so they can begin the application process that night.

SCA internships can take students to amazing places.
Each year, SCA places over 2,000 interns in a diverse array of businesses, public land agencies and nonprofit organizations throughout the U.S. Students serve in national parks, historic sites, earning a weekly living allowance and AmeriCorps education awards.

Selected interns receive free travel, training and housing. The opportunities are available to all areas of study and there are spring break options, leadership opportunities and summer internships in Alaska and Outside.

Contact Chen at 907 -717-8414. He will also be at the Natural Resources Career Fair Oct. 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Wood Center.
