Lacawac offers internship programs for undergraduate and graduate students interested in conducting ecological field research.  Similar to the National Science Foundation’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates, interns work with scientific professionals, conduct and present original research, and gain valuable professional experience at a biological field station that has a rich history of launching prominent ecologists’ careers.

Internship programs are also available to high school students.  Students studying marketing, public relations, history, and education can complete internships at Lacawac.
