American Indian students who want to get in touch with the great outdoors or work in other areas offered by the U.S. Department of Interior are encouraged to apply for internships available through the Haskell Indian Nations University environmental science/ natural resources program.
The Department of Interior is trying to increase diversity in its work force through the internship program. Interns who successfully complete the program are often offered full-time positions once they graduate from school.
Internships are available in geology, computer sciences, wildlife management, policy development, human resources management, political science, accounting, business administration and geographic information systems.
Each qualified applicant must have a minimum 3.0 grade point average, have completed his or her freshman year of college by June 1999, be a current student and be a member of a federally recognized tribe. Students do not have to attend Haskell to qualify.
The deadline for summer internships is March 1. The deadline for fall internships is July 31.
