UF/IFAS Nature Coast Biological Station Summer Internship Program
This internship program is intended to give undergraduate students at UF an opportunity for real-world experience in research and/or extension activities. Selected students will work alongside practicing researchers and natural resource managers. These internships are 240 paid work hours, from early May to mid-August (scheduled depending on host needs, some full time for six weeks, some part-time for a longer period), and interns are paid $12.00 per hour for up to 40 hours a week. The hosts include UF/IFAS faculty as well as state and federal agency partners. Interns will participate in an orientation meeting with NCBS staff and hosts, as well as a summer wrap-up workshop where interns will summarize their experiences. This is a great opportunity for students to enhance their skill sets and explore career options in natural resource fields. Application materials and host information for the 2021 program are found below. These internships are open to current undergraduates and recent graduates (within the past year) from the University of Florida.

Due to Covid-19 precautions, the plans for the summer internship could change, but we are proceeding with the application process in anticipation of being able to host full summer internships this summer.
