Do you know a student who would like a career in wildland fire management?
The BIA just announced new paid student internship opportunities through the DOI Pathways Program:
The Pathways Program is designed to provide seasonal employment and tuition assistance for students who are still in school.
=>Successful applicants will begin internship work in summer of 2016 but will be eligible for tuition assistance during the 2015-2016 academic year. Students will receive up to $5,000 in tuition assistance and be provided with summer employment opportunities working for BIA or tribal wildland fire programs. Upon successful completion of the Pathways program, student trainees may be non-competitively placed into career-conditional positions within the BIA. Summer work, locations, and duties vary and are designed to provide hands on experience and training in fire management activities.
Application DEADLINE: Tuesday, October 13, 2015
**This program is similar to the BIA TREES Pathways programs for FORESTRY students. We are hoping the forestry student trainee announcement will be posted on USAJOBS soon. I will send out an email with a link to the announcement when it does post.
