Fellowship & Internship Opportunities
Island Press: Publishing Fellow
The Publishing Fellow will have the opportunity to learn the basics of acquiring, developing, producing, selling, and marketing books. They will have hands‐on experience in select departments by working closely with all levels of staff, and attend and participate in all relevant publishing meetings. In editorial, for example, the fellow will gain an understanding of how editors identify authors and books for acquisition, and assist editors in working with authors to develop a manuscript that meets the agreed upon goals of the project.
The fellow may also work with other departments – including production, marketing, and publicity – on behalf of specific book projects, and take on additional projects to gain a deeper understanding of all areas of publishing.
USFWS: Directorate Resource Assistant Fellows Program
In Summer 2020, the U.S Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) will collaborate with its partners to administer the FWS Directorate Resource Assistant Fellows Program (DFP). The DFP is a 12-week (including 1-week orientation) internship working on projects that support FWS conservation priorities. Eligible students who are pursuing degrees in biological science and/or natural resources management will possess the desired qualifications to apply for participation in the 2020 DFP. These fellowships offer a unique opportunity to gain direct hire authority (upon successful completion of the program), which enables U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and other land management agencies to be able to hire former fellows into permanent, full-time positions within two years of graduation without having to use the competitive process.
Eligible students must be enrolled or accepted for enrollment in an undergraduate (rising seniors) or graduate degree program, and who will not complete their degree requirements prior to the completion of the 2020 DFP 11-weeks fellowship that ends in August 2020.
Specific information on the announcement and application instruction will be available later this fall. When the announcement is open for applications, we will send a message to our subscribers. You can also monitor our FWS Facebook DFP page for information.

Each year the Cal-in-Sacramento program, a core component of the Robert T. Matsui Center for Politics and Public Service, sends approximately 30 Cal students to intern in public service in California’s capital. Cal-in-Sacramento is the University of California’s largest — and one of the nation’s most prestigious — campus-based public service internship programs. Over three decades, more than 500 Cal students have gone to Sacramento under our auspices to garner first-hand experience in the most dynamic state capital in the country. Many of these students have gone on to careers in politics, government, and public service.
Cal-in-Sacramento Fellows work for eight weeks in Sacramento internships in the offices of Senate and Assembly members, the governor’s office, state agencies, or nonprofit groups. The program provides free housing for students and a free light-rail pass so students can travel to and from work.
Interested in Cal-in-Sac? Join us for an information session on either October 8 at 5:00 pm or October 14 at 6:00 pm in the IGS Library. (The same information will be presented at both sessions.) RSVP on our Facebook.
Closing Date: November 13th at 12PM
