First Alaskans Internships

First Alaskans Institute is working towards developing the next generation of Alaska Native leadership and ensuring they are connected to their culture and each other. As part of their leadership development initiative, the First Alaskans Institute offers a Summer Internship Program for Alaska Native undergraduate and graduate students. The ten-week program is a full-time paid internship open to Alaska Native/American Indian/Rural Alaskan college students in good academic standing, or recent college graduates.  Interns will spend two weeks in Anchorage participating in leadership training, and will be placed with statewide employer partners for eight weeks.  Partner organizations are asked to develop leadership, managerial or policy making level work plans for the interns, provide a supervisor and mentor, as well as contribute a placement fee for the intern.

Program dates: June 12-August 18, 2017
Application deadline: March 10, 2017
