UF/IFAS Nature Coast Biological Station Summer Internship Program (Closed for 2019)

This internship program is intended to give undergraduate students at UF an opportunity for real-world experience in research and/or extension activities. Selected students will work alongside practicing researchers and natural resource managers. These internships are six weeks, from early May to Mid-August (depending on host needs), and interns are paid $12.00 per hour for 40 hours a week. The hosts include UF/IFAS faculty as well as state and federal agency partners. Interns will participate in an orientation meeting with NCBS staff and hosts, as well as a summer wrap up workshop where interns will summarize their experiences. This is a great opportunity for students to enhance their skill sets and explore career options in natural resource fields. Application materials and host information for the 2019 program are found below. These internships are open to current undergraduates and recent graduates (within the past year) from the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, University of Florida. To see more information on our previous Interns and their experiences, go see our blog.
