January 20, 2012--Endowment Opens Field for New Year-long Intern
The U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities (the Endowment) formally announced today an opening for the year-long internship position in the Greenville, South Carolina office. Having just marked its fifth anniversary, this will continue a tradition of successful and engaged interns, offering recent graduates "in the weeds" experience with a nationally-recognized non-profit. Previous interns have gone on to graduate programs and careers in the fields of forestry, conservation, and scientific research.
Regarding the Endowment's internship program, President Carlton Owen says, "One of our first actions as a new organization was to create a formal university internship program. We couldn't be more pleased with the mutual benefits that have resulted, among them, extra hands to engage in our important work, fresh perspectives and energy, and the chance to help prepare the next generation of conservation and philanthropic leaders." A short video highlighting the program (from an intern's point of view) is available by here<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOEVP_JDOB8>.
