Chicago Botanic Garden student opportunities (and recent grads)

Calling all plant enthusiasts!  The Chicago Botanic Garden provides opportunities for
undergraduates, recent college graduates and graduate studies! See details below!

Summer Research Experiences for Undergrads (REU):
The Chicago Botanic Garden welcomes undergraduates* interested in plant biology and
conservation to apply to our REU program, funded by the National Science Foundation.
This 10 week internship program, offered from June - August 2017, provides
undergraduate participants an opportunity to explore a diverse array of scientific fields
related to plant biology and conservation spanning genetic to ecosystem levels of
inquiry. Interns work with a mentor to conduct an independent research project,
participate in training and professional development programs, and present their results
to a broad audience. Travel, room and board, and research costs are covered by the
program. Participants also receive a $5,000 stipend. Application deadline is February 1,
2017. For more information, please visit our website at:
*You must be a current undergraduate student (enrolled spring and fall 2017) and a
citizen or permanent resident of the United States or its territories to qualify for this

Conservation and Land Management Internship Program - CLM:
Each year, the Conservation and Land Management Internship Program places 100-120
college graduates in five-month paid internships to assist biologists with our federal
(BLM, NPS, FWS, FS, USGS and others) and non-profit partners.  The majority of our
internships have a heavy emphasis on botany. Interns assist in a wide variety of projects
depending on the needs of their field office. Examples of projects include: collecting
seed for restoration and conservation purposes, performing surveys for threatened and
endangered species and habitats, and collecting data on species reintroduction and
habitat management experiments.

As a CLM intern, you will receive a stipend paid every two weeks totaling $13,500 over 5
months and will attend an all-expenses paid week-long training workshop at the
Chicago Botanic Garden. In addition, the CLM Internship Program provides
opportunities to make connections in various governmental and non-profit
organizations, to learn what it's like to work at a federal agency, to explore your career
goals and expand your resume.

Applications are due January 15th, but we encourage applicants to apply soon as we
review applications on a rolling basis.  For more information and to apply online, please
