Lehigh in Costa Rica Summer Internships in Tropical Forest Conservation and Sustainable Development
Learn More at our Information Session
The Lehigh in Costa Rica Program has operated study abroad courses for over 25 years. The close association developed between Lehigh’s faculty and a variety of Costa Rican NGOs (non-government organizations) has allowed us to expand our program to include two additional initiatives: 1) A 7-week summer internship program in tropical forest conservation and sustainable development, and 2) A summer environmentally-oriented “summer serve” project. Both activities are closely tied to sustainable development.
The approximate date for the 7-week internship is June 20 to August 10, 2020. Students from ALL of Lehigh’s majors and colleges are considered and Spanish fluency is NOT required for many internship sites. Financial support is available in a variety of forms.
