SIP Intern participants can visit Conservation Legacy’s COVID-19 resources page
to find updates on current practices and polices. Conservation Legacy is the parent organization of the Stewards Individual Placement Program,
which employs all SIP Interns.
Most SIP Intern projects do not require participants to be currently enrolled students. Be careful: a small number of Direct Hire Authority (DHA) positions do require student enrollment. Undergraduate students, graduate students, and recently graduated individuals may participate.
Some SIP Intern projects have additional requirements regarding advanced skills, seasonal
availability, and academic experience. We encourage reading all eligibility requirements in the
individual project descriptions carefully.
