Providing Real Life Career Experiences
Our Natural Resources Internships (previously known as HAWK) connect students with real-life field research projects and natural resource professionals over 6 weeks during the summer. Our goal is to provide practical and career-building experiences for Wallowa County juniors and seniors.
Why should you apply for HAWK?
- It's an outdoor, paid ($1,550 stipend = $10.76 per hour job!) internship that looks great on resumes and college applications
- You'll gain skills for careers in wildlife, forestry, and natural resources
- You can explore a profession by doing it rather than just reading about it--you'll be on a field team in a learning environment different from school
Are You Eligible to Apply?
Students of the internship program:
- Must be 15 years old by the first day of the internship;
- Must be legally able to work in the U.S. (e.g., must have a Social Security Number);
- Must attend a local high school and be able to commute to Wallowa Resources' office on a daily basis;
- Must be a rising junior or senior in summer of the internship.
- Have an interest or willingness to learn in science, math, engineering, biology, and/or natural resources.
- Have demonstrated intelligence, maturity and initiative.
How to apply
Up to 4 students will be selected for this program. In order to be considered, we must receive your application form and your teacher recommendation form by Monday, May 6th. Top candidates will be selected for an in-person interview. Applications will be available in early March.
The internship usually occurs from mid-June to late July.
