On a practical note: if your program was paid and you received a paycheck anytime during 2016, you will need to file a 2016 tax return. Our tax information page and our article with tips on filing can help guide you through this process. Remember, many of our participants are eligible for refunds, so be sure to file!
“I consider working at Ocean Conservancy as the inflection point in my career. That opportunity allowed me to really improve my English skills, and also to see how the marine conservation world works. It was at the end of the internship that I was highly encouraged to pursue my career, which made me enter a Master's Program at Dalhousie University in Canada. During that internship, I learned so much. It was an opportunity that made me grow both professionally and also personally. Without the internship that I conducted at Ocean Conservancy, I have no doubt my life would be very different right now.”
