The UBC Sustainability Initiative (USI) is pleased to offer UBC graduate students the opportunity to work in funded sustainability internship projects.
We are currently accepting applications for over 60 UBC Sustainability Scholars (including Greenest City Scholars) internships that will commence May 4. Current UBC graduate students from all academic disciplines are eligible to apply.
Successful candidates will work under the mentorship of a partner organization, and are immersed in real world learning where they can apply their research skills and contribute to advancing organizational sustainability goals. Each Scholar receives $22 per hour to complete 250 hours of work.
For more information on the available projects and to apply, visit the Sustainability Scholars Program website.
Applications will be accepted until midnight Sunday February 2.
We also appreciate your help in circulating this notice to anyone in your grad student network that may be interested!
