Jobs and Interns

AMCC offers internships to high school, undergraduate, and graduate students, as well as recently graduated students. Internships can cover a variety of subjects such as fisheries biology, anthropology, local food, environmental organizing, policy, communications, fundraising, and more. Interns work closely with AMCC staff members and have other educational opportunities to learn about the inner workings of a marine conservation nonprofit and about fisheries policy in Alaska.

Unpaid internships

For students studying locally or willing to travel to Alaska, AMCC considers hosting unpaid interns for credit or experience. We love engaging with local students and often work with students from the University of Alaska and Alaska Pacific University to help them fulfill internship requirements. Internships can cover a range of topics, and AMCC often has a wide range of needs. If you have an idea or need to complete an internship, get in touch with us! Send a cover letter and resume to We accept unpaid internship applications on a rolling basis.
