The Diversity in Conservation Internship Program (DCIP) seeks to engage college students (two and four year college programs) and recent graduates from underrepresented communities, particularly of Asian, Black, Hispanic, Multi-Racial, and Native American background, in conservation careers. Conservation Trust for North Carolina launched the program in 2008 and since then has connected 118 interns to land trusts, government agencies, universities, and nonprofit organizations across North Carolina.

Interns apply to work with our partner organizations for PAID, 10-week full-time summer internships that provide hands-on opportunities to gain the skills and experiences necessary for a successful career. Through this program, CTNC and its partners introduce young adults of color to careers in conservation and connect conservation organizations to potential employees, while building each organization’s racial equity and inclusion capacity. During the summer, interns also learn about the history of race and land in America.

Preference is given to rising juniors, seniors, and graduate/professional students. For the purpose of this program, a recent graduate has been out of school for less than two years.

Internships are full time, 10-week terms that take place over the summer and run from May – August 2019. Most host sites have flexibility in start/end dates.

Application deadline is January 16, 2019
