This is an unpaid position with no housing provided, however, we do offer a $750 housing stipend (in 3 payments) for two summer internships, on a first come first serve basis. All interns are responsible for obtaining housing and transportation, though NMMC staff will do their best to assist you in making arrangements. Having a vehicle is preferred as public transportation is very limited and will not allow for participation in rescues which may take place on short notice and outside of scheduled hours. Interns are responsible for making all arrangements with their educational institution for university credit

Application Deadline: February 18, 2022
Internship Start Date: Monday, May 30, 2022 (there is some flexibility)
