On-Campus, Paid Summer Sustainability Internships

UMBC Sustainability Matters is pleased to announce that we will have two internship opportunities to help UMBC become more sustainable this summer:

Outreach & Graphic Design Intern:

We are looking for a student who is passionate about sustainability, persuasive marketing, photography and/or graphic design to help design and implement marketing materials to expand campus sustainability awareness efforts. Outdoor interpretative signs, indoor prompts, and display materials are examples of projects which will be assigned. This position will report to the Sustainability Coordinator. Must be able to commit to at least 10 hours per week.

Research & Grant Writing Intern:

This student will assist in researching and compiling funding sources, grants, and opportunities for renewable energy, energy efficiency, and effective behavior change tactics for UMBC. This information will be used in efforts to update UMBC’s Climate Action Plan and assist in carbon emissions reductions initiatives. They will also have the opportunity to assist in writing grant applications. Must be able to commit to at least 10 hours per week.

If these opportunities interest you, please submit a cover letter stating your interests and qualifications, your resume, and a writing or design sample (depending on which internship you would like to peruse). If you know of any current UMBC students who might be interested, please pass this along.

Must be able to work at least 10 hrs/week in the office during office hours (between 9am-5pm). Weekly one hour meetings with the sustainability coordinator are required. Candidates should be able to work both independently and collaboratively. Interns will also be asked to assist in outreach to students, staff and faculty as needed. An hourly wage will be provided, and earning academic credit for internships is possible.

In Fall of 2015 we will also be seeking an Eco-Ambassador Coordinator intern as well as new Eco-Ambassadors.
