Environment Fish and Wildlife organization: Like to work outdoors? Interested in rebuilding of sustainable salmon populations in the Pacific Northwest? The AISES student will work with one of the tribes that will provide hand-on experience in tributaries of the Columbia River on or near their reservations. Your tribal mentors will
work with you to understand the spiritual and cultural importance of salmon to its tribe, the strong comanagement responsibilities the tribes share with state agencies, and provide integral involvement in performing work to support the return of salmon to their native waters. Activities could include fish hatchery operations; riparian habitat enhancement; and conducting field sampling to support research and monitoring of tribal efforts. An orientation to the fish mitigation efforts, which BPA funds, will provide a week-long introduction, before you are whisked away to your 2-month field adventure.

Transmission Services organization: The student would join the Bonneville Power Administration Transmission Services Organization and be assigned to an engineering group. These groups are responsible for the planning, design, construction, operations, and maintenance of BPA’s 15,000 miles of high voltage transmission. The assignment would be similar to an assignment given to one of the existing Transmission STEP/SCEP students Placed with an engineering mentor working on an engineering project. The student will be responsible for contributing to the team to deliver an engineering need/product. The AISES student will be doing engineering work, in an engineering environment, with a measurable product as the end-goal. Assignment possibilities include a variety of electrical/electronic disciplines (design, high voltage equipment, transmission planning, field maintenance, field testing, construction, transmission operations, communications, control systems, system modeling, etc.).
