The Conservation International Singapore Environmental Internships Program aligns with Singapore's Green Plan 2020 (SG Green) to build career pathways and train youth to contribute to a sustainable future. The program aims to support Singapore's national agenda on creating solutions to build a sustainable nation that will thrive as a vibrant and liveable home for future generations.

Our Internships Program offers paid internship opportunities in environmental conservation to students from local academic institutions while providing them with first-hand professional experience working alongside our conservation scientists and experts through field assignments and corporate opportunities in the Asia-Pacific.

The internship roles offered cut across different areas of conservation and are designed to develop a deeper understanding of environmental science while gaining direct exposure to issues such as climate change and biodiversity loss.

Candidates will undergo immersive employment experiences to learn conservation methods from our experts while developing their leadership and critical thinking skills and experiencing the working culture of an international non-profit organization.

Since 2017, 46 students have benefited from this program. The program gives individuals the opportunity to get a head-start on their conservation career and helps Singapore develop the talent required to support the Green Plan 2030.

All donations qualify for the Tote Board match.

About the Charity

PEOPLE NEED NATURE TO THRIVE - Conservation International Singapore Conservation Trust (CSCT) envisions a vibrant, resilient, and sustainable Singapore for generations to come and aims to empower the community to care for and value nature's benefit to people.

CSCT's work focuses on environmental education, university internships, conservation science, research, and climate finance. We partner with the private and civil sectors to encourage environmental responsibility and sustainability through innovative conservation solutions such as natural climate solutions.

Our Environmental Education Program takes the local to global approach, where youth learn about conservation science and sustainability in an urban environment while connecting with Singapore's natural heritage. The knowledge and skills imparted through school talks, outdoor education and mentorship programs, and fun virtual learning videos help shape behaviors and empower youths to consider their impact on the environment.

We work closely with local universities to provide undergraduate and graduate students opportunities to take up paid internships or carry out field research and conservation activities with Conservation International offices across the Asia-Pacific region.

Conservation International Singapore Conservation Trust is an organization approved by the Commissioner of Charities bearing the Institution of Public Character (IPC) status.
