Host a Conservation Intern/Fellow


Our Conservation Intern and Conservation Fellow programs are made possible through host site partnerships with organizations like yours.

Host sites gain the assistance of a highly motivated young professional to assist with project implementation and program capacity building. Host site organizations include federal/state agencies, nonprofits, conservation districts, tribal offices, and other community-based conservation organizations based in Montana, Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. 

MCC’s Individual Placement Program covers member recruitment and administrative aspects including payroll and worker's comp.  Host sites make the final selection of the member who will serve for a 14 or 20-week term that begins in May. Host Site organizations are required to submit an application to participate in programming, provide a minimum of 10 hours a week of supervision to the member, and meet cost-share requirements. 

Qualified host site organizations in Montana are invited to submit a competitive application to host a Conservation Intern and/or Fellow member using the link below.

For questions regarding the program or the application contact Bryan Wilson at or 406-587-4475 ext 107.

“It’s obvious MCC cares about their interns. I can see that in the additional weekly professional development work [interns] do and also how supportive the staff is whenever something comes up. We are excited to host two more interns next year!”
