AGFC Internship Program
The AGFC Internship program is designed to help students gain education and practical experience related to the conservation work AGFC performs and to meet hands-on training requirements necessary for students to earn their degree. This training is critical to students pursuing a conservation career and is often the deciding factor in gaining employment after college.
The AGFC Internship program operates under these guidelines:
- Interns are considered Extra Help positions and are subject to all related AGFC policies for Extra Help employment.
- Internships are up to 400 hours and paid an established hourly rate of $12.75 per hour.
- To be eligible for an Internship, applicants must meet the following prerequisites:
- Must have a declared degree in a conservation field.
- Must have 60 hours of college credits earned by the time the Internship begins.
- At the time of application, must be a college student, graduated within the previous 12 months, or currently enrolled in a post-graduate program.
- Must have a 2.5 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale.
- Intern supervisors are required to provide a conservation education component to the internship.
- Intern supervisors are required to complete an end-of-internship evaluation with the Intern and submit final report to the Human Resources Division.
- Selected interns will coordinate directly with their college or university to obtain course credit for the internship.
