Internships (Internship Flier)

WNY PRISM provides opportunities for students in need of an internship to fulfill class requirements, or for others looking for professional experience as they prepare for their careers. These are unpaid positions. 

Interns are accepted for spring semester only (Jan – May), but applications are accepted throughout the preceding fall semester, beginning in September. The application deadline for consideration is January 10. Applications are considered as they are received and positions may be filled prior to the application deadline. 

To apply, interested students must submit a resume, internship requirements (if applicable) and a project idea or description of the type of project they are interested in. The project proposal should include the reason for your interest in the specific project and/or in WNY PRISM and invasive species management, and should be no longer than a single page. WNY PRISM can’t guarantee we’ll be able to support your specific project, but if selected into the intern program, staff will work with you to find a similar project that meets both your interest and WNY PRISM needs.

WNY PRISM is hosted by the Great Lakes Center at Buffalo State, but the program is open to everyone.
