The U.S. Forest Service (USFS), through partnership with The Wildlife Society (TWS), is offering research assistantships for Native American undergraduate or graduate students as part of the TWS professional development program for Native Americans. The program will facilitate student mentoring opportunities with USFS Research & Development (R&D) scientists and promote student advancement and training for careers in natural resource and conservation-related fields. A paid stipend of at least $6,700 will be provided to cover living expenses during the assistantship time-period. The Forest Service uses an ecological science-based approach to make informed decisions on the multiple-use management of the National Forests and Grasslands.
