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 undergarduates of 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). The deadline for applications every year is January 27.
Please note that due to the inability of most of our interns to complete their internships in the summer of 2020 because of COVID-19, there may be fewer spots available in 2021. This information will be updated in November to give the final details about which internship locations are available to apply to for the summer of 2021.
The A. Paul Knight Internship was the best summer of my life. I had an unbelievable experience that I won’t soon forget. The opportunity to work with such a neat conservation organization such as the Henry’s Fork Foundation has opened my eyes to all different sorts of conservation techniques and really cool people.
