New England Wildlife Center
Preserving New England's Wild Legacy
Admission Review Process

All applications will first be reviewed regarding completeness. If the application is not
complete, the applicant will be removed from consideration.

When an application meets the Center’s interests, goals and guidelines, the applicant may be
contacted to arrange an interview. It is also possible that the Center will make use of e-mail
to initiate with the applicant an email conversation regarding the application.

When applying for the summer months, applications are reviewed after the February 15th
deadline. Following evaluation, applicants will receive notification of the decision in a timely
manner, and in writing. Unfortunately, the Center receives many more applications than it
can possibly accommodate. If we are not able to offer you a position it is likely that we were
simply not able to accommodate another intern at your requested internship period.

If applying for the Fall, Winter or Spring seasons, applications will be reviewed as they are
received and applicants will be accepted or denied on a rolling basis. First come, first served
– so apply early to make sure you get a spot.

    Hi!

    I was wondering when I would be hearing if I have been accepted as an intern? I sent Dr. Adamski a couple of emails as well as leaving him a voice message. He said he would be in touch shortly,but that was a couple weeks ago. I also called Nina and left her a message. Interning at the center would be an amazing opportunity and I just wanted to make sure that my emails and calls weren’t being missed.
    Thanks so much,
    Jen Colangelo.

    Hi, I mailed in my application a few days before that February 14th deadline for the summer internship and have not heard back from the Wildlife Center yet… I would just like to confirm that the application arrived at its destination? Thank you so much!

    • Katrina Bergman says:

      Hi Julianna, Please call Nina Flaherty at 781 682 4878 x119 or email her directly at nflah53@aol.com. I know the letters are going out next week so she will be able to help. She is very prompt so if you leave a message, she’ll get back to you soon. :)

  4. Jen Colangelo says:

    Hi!
    I sent my application materials to nflah53@aol.com on the 14th. I sent another email just to confirm that the documents had been received and I haven’t heard back. I just want to make sure that you received my application materials.
    Thanks!
    Jen.

    Hello,
    I visited the center on March 12th to find out the status of the internship applications. I was wondering when we will find out. I called the center last Friday and they informed me that the emails haven’t been sent out yet. Above I see that Dr. Rob says they were sent out on March 19th. I have not received an email. Will we get an email even if we don’t get a position. I am concerned that my application never made it.
    Thank you,
    Sarah Kass

  14. Samantha Kessler says:

    Hi,
    I was just wondering around when internship applicants should expect to hear back on a decision. Also, are applicants notified if they are not selected for the internship, or will one only hear back if they have been selected?
    Thank you,
    Sammy

    • Katrina Bergman says:

      Hi Sammy, You should hear back very soon. I will let Dr. Rob know that you have contacted us on the website, but please also email him at newildlifecenter@gmail.com and he will respond quickly. Thanks so much. I hope to see you soon.
