Review the National Volunteer Student Internship Program guide to learn more about the internship.


I absolutely loved every second that I was working with CNPP. I feel like I was challenged and really utilized in completing projects.

It is such a good feeling to know that you are able to contribute in a way that is mutually beneficial.

Because of my work here, communicating scientifically based research to the public will probably become the focus of my future career.
