High School Internships
Summer Internship in Field Biology and
High school internships are open to New York State residents 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 a resident of Otsego County, NY 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 summer 2017 has ended - application review is underway and applicants will be contacted in mid-May.
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.
