The *Future Park Leaders of Emerging Change (FPL) is sponsored and managed
by the National Park Service (NPS) <https://www.nps.gov/index.htm>and
the University of Washington College of the Environment
<https://environment.uw.edu/>. *The FPL program supports paid internships
to highly accomplished undergraduate and graduate students to work in
national parks for about 12 weeks on projects in environmental and climate
change research, interpretation, park operations, policy development, and
other fields. FPL interns connect with park resources, gain experience, and
build leadership skills that prepare them to take on the challenges of the

National parks and NPS programs develop and oversee structured projects in
one or more of the following interdisciplinary areas: climate change
science and monitoring; resource conservation and adaptation; policy
development; sustainable park operations; facilities adaptation; and
communication/interpretation/education. During the internship, students
apply critical thinking and problem-solving skills to address resource
management challenges in national parks and communicate with diverse
stakeholders. Interns who successfully complete the FPL, an approved
Direct Hire Authority Internship program, will be *eligible to be hired
non-competitively into subsequent federal jobs *once they complete their
degree program. These jobs would be in the Department of Interior (DOI),
NPS, or one of the other bureaus within the DOI. An intern must qualify
for the job in order to be hired non-competitively.
