The University of Arizona is partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to provide hands-on experiences via paid summer internships related to soil health, wildlife biology, environmental engineering, and more.
Internships are available for all current UA students, but are specifically for students that identify as LGBTQ+, and are pursuing a degree in Agriculture, Agricultural/Civil/Environmental Engineering, Natural Resources, or any other related major.
As part of the internship, students will spend time assisting NRCS field office staff in providing conservation planning and technical assistance to farmers, ranchers, other types of landowners, and local government officials. Student interns will learn about natural resource management strategies as our technical specialists recommend ways to conserve soil, improve water quality and quantity, manage nutrients, protect, and enhance wildlife habitat, and help improve the producer’s operation. Application is due January 28, 2022.
