  • BIA Pathways Program

    The Branch of Wildland Fire Management is now advertising fire and forestry entry level positions for the BIA Pathways Student Internship Program.

    The Program is designed to provide seasonal employment and tuition assistance for students still in school. Successful applicants will begin internship work during breaks of summer 2017, but will be eligible for tuition assistance during the upcoming academic year. Students will receive up to $5,000 in tuition assistance and be provided with summer employment opportunities working for BIA or tribal wildland fire programs. While pursuing a college degree in a particular career field, students gain real, paid work experience.

    Upon successful completion of the Pathways program, student trainees may be non-competitively placed into career-conditional positions within the BIA. Summer work, locations, and duties vary and are designed to provide hands on experience and training in wildland fire management activities.

    The Job vacancies close January 6, 2017. Applicants must apply online:
