The intern program at the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute provides an opportunity for college students and postgraduates to obtain hands-on experience in fish and wildlife sciences and related fields. Intern positions are unpaid, and the student is expected to contribute at least eight to 10 hours per week for at least 10 weeks (or a minimum of 80 hours). Prior to the termination of the internship, the student will be expected to present a 15- to 20-minute seminar to FWRI staff describing some aspect of the student's intern experience.
