In 2018 two types of LHIP internships are available.

LHIP Intern

A LHIP Intern is an entry level internship that focuses on career exploration and building fundamental natural resource management, interpretation, and outreach. Each LHIP Intern will receive a weekly stipend of $400, park-provided housing or a housing allowance and paid travel expenses. Interns who successfully complete 640 hours of work in one or more eligible internships and are under the age of 26 will be eligible for the Public Land Corps noncompetitive hiring authority for two years following the completion of the internship. Successful completion of an LHIP internship does not guarantee that the participant will be hired into a federal position.

Applicants should meet the following requirements:
– Age 18 to 35
– US citizen or permanent resident
– Currently enrolled in or recently graduated (two years) from a higher education program
– Spanish proficiency is helpful and required for some positions
– Additional qualifications required for certain positions

Internship Benefits:

The LHIP Direct Hiring Authority Resource Assistant internship (DHA-RA) is a unique internship opportunity aiming to build a pathway to employment in the Department of Interior (DOI). DHA-RA interns will apply cultural and natural resource expertise to NPS management and build a network with federal employees throughout the internship. These rigorous internships require specialized knowledge and typically are available to upper level undergraduate students, graduate students or recent graduates. DHA-RA interns will receive a weekly stipend of $480, park-provided housing or a housing allowance, and paid travel expenses. DHA-RA interns who successfully complete the internship requirements become eligible to be non-competitively hired by the DOI for two years from the date of their degree. Successful completion of the internship does not guarantee that the participant will be hired into a federal position.The Latino Heritage Internship Program is administered jointly by the National Park Service, Environment for the Americas, and the Hispanic Access Foundation. Its aim is to train young Latinos in cultural and natural resource management while raising awareness and utilization of national parks and cultural resources by Latino communities.

Internship Benefits:

– Housing costs covered
– Travel costs to site covered (intern responsible for daily commuting costs)
