Are you interested in a career in natural resources?

The Salish Kootenai College Center for Tribal Research and Education in Ecosystem Sciences—SKC TREES—has opportunities for tribal and non-enrolled students of Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs).

TREES places college students in science-based internships with the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the U.S. Forest Service and other qualified partners.
