Hudson-Raritan Estuary Student Opportunities Board

This map of the Hudson-Raritan Estuary reflects the span in which internship and fellowships opportunities posted here are located.

The value of internships and fellowships in the environmental sciences is indisputable. Students gain practical skills, essential work experience, and the chance to build connections in the field. Participating organizations gain an extra pair of hands and a chance to help engage and train the next generation of environmental professionals.

This searchable database is intended to connect high school and undergraduate students to open internships and fellowships to help organizations reach an expanded and more diverse pool of applicants. Listings are located within the Hudson-Raritan Estuary watershed – an area we define as stretching from the Troy Dam near Albany, NY to the Sandy Hook-Rockaway Point transect. This includes the Passaic and Hackensack Rivers, the Lower Raritan River, and Jamaica Bay. All positions listed below are in fields relevant to careers in environmental science and policy.
