I am currently recruiting for several summer 2020 Sustainability Scholars Program internships: Deadline to apply is midnight, March 8.
Successful candidates 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. Internships run May 4 to August 14, 2020. Each Scholar receives $22 per hour to complete 250 hours of work.
