Fully Funded February Break Trip The Center for Careers and Internships and the Middlebury Professional Networks are partnering to provide a fully donor-funded “Environment & Sustainability Student Trek” to the San Francisco Bay Area & Monterey, CA over February break. The objective is to expose students interested in all areas of the environment and sustainability to real-world professional experiences that will enable them to apply their liberal arts learning while informing their career exploration and other post-graduate planning.

The Environment & Sustainability Student Trek experience is open to all sophomores, juniors, and seniors. It will include 10 students competitively selected through the application process described below, with strong preference given to students who receive financial aid as per the request of the donor.

To help ensure that there is no barrier to participation, all travel, lodging, meals, and related expenses will be paid.
This immersive “living and learning” experience will be organized around job-shadowing opportunities with alumni and field visits to organizations with a focus on renewable energy, water/air/land conservation, sustainable agriculture, and climate change mitigation, along with programming at MIIS and the Center for the Blue Economy in Monterey. The experience will also include reflection dinners and career conversations with other select alumni and friends of the College. Students will travel and live together as a cohort, and the week will kick-off with an Energy2028 Summit Reception including alumni and student participants on the first day of the trip in SF.
