This is a program open to high school seniors with an interest in natural resources who plan to enroll in an accredited two- or four- year institution in MN this fall and pursue a STEM degree. The IDEC program provides a unique opportunity for underrepresented students, specifically, women, racial or ethnic minorities, and/or individual with disabilities to develop a career path through three components:

o Fellowship: The fellowship provides students with a supportive community, yearly academic scholarship, and professional development.

o Mentorship: The mentorship aims to enhance college success, encourage personal and professional development, and promote career advancement by pairing fellows with employees at one of the participating state agencies.

o Internship: The full-time paid internship, which runs from May to August, allows fellows to learn more about environmental and natural resources career paths through paid, on-the-job experience.

They are actively accepting applications until May 28, 2021 and free online information sessions are offered throughout the application period!  Contact May Yang (she/her/hers) at may.yang@conservationcorps.org or at 651-785-6209.
