FLIP - Federal Lands Internship Program

The Four Corners Federal Lands Internship Program (FC-FLIP) is a partnership between Southwest Conservation Corps (SCC) and Mountain Studies Institue (MSI) that connects regional college students and recent graduates with resource managers to gain hands-on knowledge and skills of what it means to work with or for a federal agency. The goal of the program is to better prepare the next generation of agency personnel. This rigorous paid 11-week career-building internship program offers an outstanding opportunity to learn from professionals in the field, build skills, and gain networking contacts - all while living in a beautiful place. Each member will be paired with a natural resource scientist or manager for a 10-week internship and participate in a one-week orientation/training. Students will learn, during their 10 weeks in the field, how the methods used by natural resource professionals and community planners contribute to real-world projects and impacts.
