  • NCPE Internships: Eligibility & How to Apply


    To be eligible, applicants must be currently enrolled in a degree-seeking academic program or recently graduated (within the past 12 months). Interns are not eligible to work more than 1200 hours total in this program; previous interns must stay within this overall limit. The length of an internship can vary from 10 to 30 weeks if full time (400 to 1200 hours total) or longer if on a part-time schedule. If selected, the exact starting date will be determined by you and the NPS supervisor. Stipends are paid at $15.00 per hour unless otherwise listed.

    The successful candidate is responsible for finding and paying for travel to and housing at the internship location; some exceptions apply. The supervising National Park Service (NPS) office may be able to assist in locating housing but it is ultimately up to the individual accepting the internship to find accommodation.

    Also be aware that, due to Government-wide security requirements, a background check will be required if you are selected for a position. This will include providing information about recent housing and employment history. The position supervisor will have more information about these requirements and procedures at the time of hiring. You may direct any questions to NCPE's Internship Program Director, Julee Johnson, at

    Please note that interns are not NCPE or NPS employees. Stipends are academic awards and taxes are not withheld, nor are social security contributions made on your behalf. These funds may be taxable, however, so consult a tax preparation professional if you have questions.
