Native American Student Internship Application 2013
The Wisconsin Tribal Conservation Advisory Council (WTCAC) Native American Student Summer Internship Program is announcing positions for the summer of 2013. With financial support from the “Forest County Potawatomi Foundation” WTCAC is partnering with USDA agencies in Wisconsin and Michigan to offer up to fourteen (14) positions to Native American students who are pursuing degrees in Natural Resources, Biological Sciences, Agriculture, Agricultural Business and Civil Engineering. The intent of this Internship Program is to expose Native American Students to potential career opportunities within the numerous agencies of the United States Department of Agriculture, with the hope that someday they will become valuable employees of USDA who will work with the farmers, ranchers and communities of our country’s 566 Tribal Nations. It is WTCAC’s belief that for USDA to have fully successful programs on Tribal Nations, USDA needs to have Tribal employees working on those Tribal Nations, who understand the customs, beliefs, and needs of the people.
