The Fairchild Challenge invites high school students to apply for our 6-week paid summer internships.

Interns in the past have grown orchids, learned genetic techniques, grown plants for NASA, and more. Must be at least 16 years of age at the start of the internship.
SCHOLARSHIP – Please check back in winter 2021!
The Fairchild Challenge invites high school seniors to apply for a $2,500 college scholarship. Two scholarships are available. Students must have participated in the Fairchild Challenge during high school and plan to study biology, ecology, or environmental science in college.
Fairchild is dedicated to making sure all schools have the resources necessary to conduct environmental science activities in the classroom. Although we cannot fund everything, we can help schools find funding within the community. Check out these opportunities!
