Diversity in Natural Resources

The Mosaics in Science Internship Program provides students who are under-represented in natural resource science career fields with on-the-ground, science-based, work experience with the National Park Service. 

Cultural Resources Diversity Internship Program (CRDIP) provides career exploration opportunities for diverse undergraduate and graduate students and recent graduates ages 18-35 in historic preservation/cultural resources work. The program places interns with National Park Service units and administrative offices, other federal agencies, state historic preservation offices, local governments, and non-profit organizations. Intern sponsors provide work experiences that assist interns with building their resumes in this field. 

Latino Heritage Internship Program (LHIP) aims to provide meaningful work experience to Latino students in the fields of resource management, interpretation, and outreach. LHIP is administered in partnership with the Hispanic Access Foundation (HAF) and Environment for the Americas (EFTA). In addition to working on substantive NPS assignments, LHIP interns receive additional mentoring and support through HAF and EFTA.

The Diversity Joint Venture for Conservation Careers (DJV) is a partnership of federal and state agencies, universities, non-governmental organizations, foundations, and professional societies that work together to increase the number of women and people of color in the conservation workforce.

The Increasing Diversity in Environmental Careers (IDEC) program provides a unique opportunity for underrepresented STEM college students, specifically women, racial and ethnic minorities, or individuals with disabilities to develop a career path through a fellowship, mentorship, and internship program during their academic journey in Minnesota,
