Ceiba internships Ecuador

Conservation Internships in Ecuador

Conservation Internships in Ecuador with the Ceiba Foundation for Tropical Conservation provide hands-on experience in real-world tropical conservation and sustainable development. We offer a variety of 4 to 10 week internships for credit in conservation and sustainable development in the coastal region of Ecuador, home of seasonally dry tropical forests, one of the most threatened ecosystems on Earth. Interns may work to restore habitat, engage with communities in agroforestry and other sustainable enterprises, provide environmental education, or assist in managing and monitoring forest reserves.
How to Apply
1. Read the Conservation Internships Handbook for complete details on the internship program, including lodging, work schedule, application process, and cost.
2. Search the Internship Opportunities for internships that interest you, and select a 4-10 week session from the Session Calendar. You may indicate your FIRST and SECOND choice on your application form.

3. If you are not seeking academic credit for your internship, or are arranging credit through another institution, apply online here.

*Please note that Ceiba internships for credit are available through our UW Madison sponsored courses only. If you want to earn University of Wisconsin-Madison credit for an 8-week summer internship, you must apply through UW-Madison International Academic Programs. Those enrolled in other universities who wish to receive credit must arrange this with their adviser at their home institution.

4. Fill out Part I of the "Internship Agreement" form and send it to the contact person for your 1st choice internship, asking them to fill out Part II of the form, sign it and return it to you. You must turn in a signed internship agreement form before Ceiba will issue a final acceptance for your internship.
5. Allow 2-3 weeks to receive your acceptance. You may contact us to check on the status of your application. Once you are accepted to the internship program, we will send you additional details to help you prepare.
