Sealaska Internship Program

2019 Sealaska Summer Intern Class

We support Native students to help them find and foster fulfilling careers.

Summer Internships for Students

Sealaska interns work with our teams to provide new perspectives, innovation, and research throughout the company. You will be able to apply your education through practical experience in the field and corporate environment.

At Sealaska, you’ll have opportunities to explore your career interests, grow your professional skills, and connect with the unique and vibrant cultures of the Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian people. You will spend the summer with peers who share an Alaska Native heritage, learning from each other and building a community as you venture into your careers.

Each summer, internships include Engineering and Technology, Land Stewardship and Environmental, Culture and Community, and Business.
