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.
The BFS must receive a completed application package by 5:00pm on Friday, April 10th 2015. Late applications may be considered in the case that specific positions remain unfilled; contact the BFS with inquiries.
A complete application package consists of the following 3 items (click below to download the MS Word Files):
- Application Form: to be completed by the applicant (must be age 16 or older to apply)
- 2 Recommendation Forms: to be completed by 2 different individuals who will provide insight into the applicant's character and abilities.
It is the applicant’s responsibility to see that 2 different individuals each submit a completed recommendation form. Recommendation forms are to be submitted directly by the referees. It is important that applicants understand that their applications will not be considered complete unless both of their referees have completed and sent recommendation forms.
Completed forms can be submitted by email or by US Mail.
