The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is partnering with Hispanic Access Foundation, Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANRRS), Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program (DDCSP) and AISES (American Indian Science and Engineering Society) to implement their 2023 Directorate Resource Assistant Fellows Program (DFP).
The DFP is for students interested in conservation careers and positions that support the FWS mission to work with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. In prior years, positions included work on species conservation planning, field surveys and monitoring for species, landscape-scale conservation partnerships, environmental law and policy, education and outreach, community engagement, digital communications, and other areas that support FWS’ mission.
Selected students participate in a paid 12-week summer Fellowship program with a week-long orientation and 11 weeks of 40-hour work in remote or in-person positions, as designated in each position description. Upon successful completion of the Fellowship program, along with degree conferral, participants may be directly hired or appointed to full-time, permanent positions without competition.
Please see the linked file below and http://manoproject.org/fwsdfp for more info and descriptions of available positions (including one in our office, 1-2 Bear Outreach and Education in the North Cascades). This program is a great way to learn more about careers with FWS and receive a direct hire benefit upon completion of the program and their degree!
The application deadline has been extended to January 13, 2023.
