A. Paul Knight Internship Program in Conservation
Interested in conservation and the environment? Love the outdoors? Apply to be a W&L Knight Intern in Conservation. The Knight Program is open to all W&L first-years, sophomores, and juniors in any major and includes housing and a stipend. Knight Interns work for 10 weeks for one of three conservation organizations in Idaho. Those three organizations are: The Henry's Fork Foundation (1 intern), Friends of Harriman State Park (1 intern), and The Nature Conservancy at Flat Ranch (2 interns). Due to the remote location of these internships, applicants must have their own private vehicles that they can take to Idaho. The deadline for applications every year is January 27.
Starting an internship at the Oregon Natural Desert Association (ONDA), I wasn't really sure what to expect. I was told that it would be best for me to have my own car, so I made the long trek from eastern Nebraska to central Oregon.
