Sunday deadline to apply for CMC, Forest Service internship

Colorado Mountain College is taking applications until midnight Sunday for its new two-year paid internship in land management sustainability studies being offered in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service.

The Rocky Mountain Land Management Internship is the first of its kind in the nation and enables CMC students to work part time with the Forest Service while pursuing a bachelor’s degree in sustainability studies from CMC.

Student interns will work in the field developing the skills, training and experience necessary to meet the growing demand for natural resource specialists and recreation managers, while pursuing a degree and/or a certificate of completion in public lands stewardship, according to a CMC news release.

“Graduates will be eligible to compete for full-time employment with the Forest Service or other federal land management agencies, with the competitive advantage of qualifying as an existing federal employee,” according to the release. Other federal land management agencies include the National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service and Bureau of Land Management.

Participants can base their internships at one of two CMC campuses, in Steamboat Springs or at Spring Valley-Glenwood Springs.

Current students as well as graduates from CMC and other institutions are encouraged to apply. Learn more at http://coloradomtn.edu/academics/internship-program/usfs-internship/. Applications will be accepted through midnight April 30. Questions about the program can be directed to Nathan Stewart, nlstewart@coloradomtn.edu or 970-870-4562.
