    Future Ecologists Internship- Application period closed as of 4/5

    As an organization that aims to “unite people and science for conservation,” we recognize that to truly advance that goal we must create a culture that celebrates diversity, fosters inclusivity, and values dissenting opinions and rigorous examination within our own community. With those goals in mind, the Vermont Center for Ecostudies (VCE) is announcing our new internships for individuals who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color—the Future Ecologists internship. This internship will provide two aspiring ecologists the opportunity to join VCE in our various research and conservation initiatives this summer (May 23-August 12, 2022).
