State Of Wisconsin Student Diversity Internship Program

The State of Wisconsin Student Diversity Internship Program offers opportunities for all students across the state. This internship program explicitly targets students across culturally diverse groups with different lived experiences, representing the global spectrum of ethnicity, gender and ability. The goal of the program is to provide those students with an opportunity to experience the professional work environment of the DNR and Wisconsin state government. The program provides students with a paid internship, valuable work experience and training. Students who are veterans are also strongly encouraged to apply.
