The Chesapeake Bay Foundation takes pride in offering hands-on, challenging, and rewarding internships to students with a passion for the environment and our mission.

CBF's Internship Program is continually striving to increase its number of internship opportunities, though the availability of internships is often dependent on current projects and initiatives.

CBF interns enjoy the opportunity to enhance their skills related to their area of study, as well as learn the inner-workings of a non-profit organization working to save the Bay. Not only do they experience an office environment, but also the chance to experience the Bay first-hand through meaningful watershed experiences and other activities.

Below is a current list of all CBF internship opportunities that are currently available.

Class of 2017 spring and summer internships will begin to be posted in late February/early March. Internships will be posted as soon as they are approved and we will hire only for those posted here. CBF does not have the ability to create internships based on student needs or requests.

Please see the CBF Internship Program FAQs for commonly asked questions before e-mailing the organization. If you have an internship question or inquiry not addressed in the FAQs, please send an e-mail to internships@cbf.org and your request will be responded to within 48 hours.
