Water Resource and Land Management Internship Program

Hosting a Water Resource and Land Management Intern:
The Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona is seeking tribal, federal or state agencies or NGO’s located within a Colorado River Basin state (www.naturalresourcespolicy.org/images/col-river-basin/map-tribes-crb.jpg) who are working on tribal water and land management efforts to host a college student for a 8 to 10-week summer internship. Entities with the ability to supervise and mentor students in these areas are encouraged to apply.

The interns will be highly motivated undergraduate or graduate students majoring in water and land management or related careers from different colleges and universities nationwide. ITEP provides each student intern with a stipend, and housing and travel allowances for interns that relocate. There is also a small supplies budget to support the intern. The host site provides a work-place and supervision for the intern. Some internships may be virtual. You are welcome to submit applications for both virtual projects and in-person projects. The projects MUST focus on addressing water or integrated water and land management and policy issues relevant to tribal communities in one of the 9 Colorado River basin states in the US or Mexico.
