Short-term training programs (e.g., several two-week programs completed) are not considered an academic course of study.

This internship is for current students in good standing at an accredited education. The intern must be able to work full time when not attending classes and be able to work evenings and weekends during the summer season

For this internship, you must be a current student majoring in biological sciences, agriculture, natural resource management, chemistry, or related disciplines appropriate to the position.

Interns will be assigned tasks designed to increase familiarity with the target occupation in a real-world work environment.

This opportunity follows a standard promotional path:

  • Internship selection will be made at the GS-03, GS-04, GS-05 level. These grade levels are what typical college students in their first, second or third year may qualify.
  • Within 120 days after completion of Internship requirements, you may be eligible for conversion to the entry-level for the target occupation.

For example, 30 semester hours or 45 quarter hours is comparable to 1 year of undergraduate education. Four years of progressive study or 120 semester hours meets the degree requirements. Additional credit cannot be given for duplicate course work.
  • For study at a business or technical school, 36 weeks of study (20+ classroom hours per week) is comparable to 1 academic year above high school.
  • An academic year of graduate education is considered to be the number of credit hours that the school attended has determined to represent 1 academic year of full-time study. This determination is made based on normal course loads for a full year of study in the graduate program. If that information cannot be obtained from the school, 18 semester hours or 27 quarter hours should be considered as satisfying the 1 year of full-time study requirement. Part-time graduate education is creditable in accordance with its relationship to a year of fulltime study at the school attended.
  • When academic credit is expressed in contract months, units, or other terms that differ from conventional semester or quarter hours, it is the responsibility of the applicant to provide an interpretation of such credits from the appropriate institution in order to equate them to the semester or quarter hours specified in the standard.

NOTE: If your college, vocational, trade, technical or high schools' definition of "academic year" differs from above, you must submit proof of this difference (e.g., copy of course catalog that defines an academic year). Absent this documentation, you will be screened for academic qualifications based on the academic hours as defined in the bullets above.

Conditions of employment:

  • Ability to work nights, weekends and/or holidays depending on the needs of the project. 
  • Required to wear prescribed uniform
  • Must possess and maintain a valid driver's license.
  • Possession or ability to acquire Corps of Engineers boat operator's license within 2 years.
  • Must complete Park Ranger training requirements (including Visitor Assistance Training, CPR, First Aid, Blood Borne Pathogens, and Unarmed Self Defense) within one year.
