Great Hollow offers summer internships to undergraduate or graduate students who are majoring in the natural sciences and have a strong academic record and an interest in field biology. Interns work under the Executive Director on our summer research projects, during which they gain experience in study design, field methods, data collection, and data analysis. Interns also help with miscellaneous office duties, public events, youth education programs, trail maintenance, invasive plant removal, and otherwise contribute to the general day-to-day operation of Great Hollow. Internships generally begin in late May and last 8 weeks, although start and end dates are usually flexible. A weekly stipend of $200-250 is included, depending on experience. Free on-site housing is available for interns who do not live locally.
