International Internships and Research
International internships allow students to pursue professional experience on a global level while receiving academic credit and using financial aid and scholarships to support time abroad. Internships are available:
- In the following areas: forest engineering management; wood product development; marketing and trade; natural resource management; community development; forest and wildlife conservation and ecology; recreation and tourism; wood science; and renewable material development.
- In all types of professional organizations including research labs, industry, small businesses, NGOs, government agencies, non-profits and education.
- In all languages including English.
- At all times of year.
- For undergraduate and graduate students.
Most internships are 8-12 weeks in duration. Internship providers often help interns find housing, get oriented to their work place and environment, and develop critical work skills. Many also provide stipends or other support to help cover costs. While you must register for a minimum of one credit, you can earn more. The College of Forestry accepts applications for internships up to a year in advance on a rolling basis.

If you have conducted research as an undergraduate or graduate and want to share your projects at conferences, we can help with that as well. Previous CoF students have attended conferences in Japan, New Zealand, Australia, and other locations.
If you would like to undertake research or wish to attend a conference abroad and are looking for funding, apply for the Dean's Fund Award. Available for both undergrad and graduate CoF students, you can apply for funding for your international experience. Click here for more information on the Dean's Fund.
