Click Here for Acceptance Process

Acceptance decisions and notification will be made via email up until the end of March, 2018. Applicants are first accepted into the Forest Foundation Summer Internship Program. Once you accept our offer through a signed contract (see below), we begin host agency placements.

  • CONTRACT: Acceptance of our offer into the program must be confirmed by returning a signed contract to Laney Makin at laney@forestfoundation.net no later than two weeks after you receive an acceptance notification via email. Acceptance is also a commitment to attend and participate in all internship related events.
  • AGENCY PLACEMENTS: Placements are based on various criteria including agency need, your personal skills and interests, and geography. An in-person or phone interview with your prospective host agency will be required.
  • If you choose not to accept your initial host agency placement, your application will be waitlisted and we may offer you another placement. If this process is unsuccessful, the position will be offered to another applicant.

Questions or information, please contact Laney Makin, Program Coordinator by email at laney@forestfoundation.net
