Science & Research Internships

The science staff at Cape Cod National Seashore is engaged in a wide range of research, monitoring, and stewardship activities. There are plenty of exciting internship opportunities for students.

  • Contribute to meaningful scientific research, monitoring, or natural resource stewardship projects.
  • Learn field and laboratory techniques.
  • Develop proficiency with scientific instruments and sampling equipment.

Most internships are designed to fit within the summer season to accommodate students, although internships can be available almost any time of year.

Cape Cod National Seashore offers many of its internships through the Student Conservation Association (SCA). Check out the SCA website for listings.
