High School Internships
Summer Internship in Field Biology and
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.
Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2016 field season
Housing is not currently available at the BFS for high school students; 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.
