HWS students can pursue opportunities for summer research, paid work or academic credit through independent studies as Finger Lakes Institute interns. Students work with FLI staff members on projects focused on water quality, invasive species, mercury and contaminants, watershed management and environmental education.
The FLI staff collaborates with many regional partners and other academic institutions on Finger Lakes environmental issues and can connect interested students with employment opportunities and graduate school contacts.
Many FLI interns pursue graduate degrees in aquatic sciences after leaving HWS or professional positions at environmental consulting firms.
Students interested in an internship position at the Finger Lakes Institute should contact the FLI at firstname.lastname@example.org.
