High School Internships

Environmental Monitoring

High school internships are open to individuals age 16 or older as of June 20th. The number of positions available to High School students varies from 1-3 depending on funding for a given year. At least one position must be filled by an Otsego County, NY resident, and so in the case that only one position is available, we are required to choose an Otsego County resident if a suitable candidate exists. Students from locales outside of Otsego County are absolutely encouraged to apply, but should be aware of this potential restriction AND must be prepared to arrange housing for themselves.

The Application Period for 2014 Internships has ended.

Application materials for summer 2015 internships will be available by January 15, 2015.

 

Housing

Housing is not currently available at the BFS; please consider this before applying for an internship if you are not within commuting distance of the SUNY Oneonta Campus or the Biological Field Station (north of Cooperstown, NY). See the FAQs for more housing and transportation information.
