The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Hispanic Access Foundation’s MANO Project are collaborating once more to host next year’s Directorate Fellows Program (DFP). DFP is a special hiring program for students interested in conservation careers. Fellowships include:
- A full-time, paid 12-week summer fellowship term (remote and in-person opportunities available)
- Free government housing or a stipend to support housing costs
- Health insurance coverage throughout the fellowship term
- Career mentorship and eligibility for a permanent position via direct hire authority upon successful completion of the fellowship and degree requirements
- Projects in species conservation planning, field surveys and monitoring for species, landscape-scale conservation partnerships, environmental law and policy, education and outreach, community engagement, digital communications, and more!
The program is open to undergraduate rising seniors, undergraduate seniors, or enrolled/current graduate students with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher (full eligibility requirements are listed at manoproject.org/manodfp). We strongly encourage women and underrepresented people of color, and students with disabilities to apply.
