Summer Internships in Conservation/Agriculture/Economics with Natural Resources Conservation Service

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has begun posting internships for college students for the upcoming summer. Please share this with your network: 

Jobs may continue to be posted over the next week or so, but pay attention to closing dates as they tend to be only 1 week after initial posting and can close early if there is an overwhelming response. 

Students typically need to have 2 summers left before graduation to work as an intern, meet the requirements of the program, and successfully convert to full time employment after graduation. 

Be aware, having a COVID vaccine or request for exemption is now a condition of employment.  From the job announcements:

  • Federal employees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 regardless of their duty location. If selected, you will be required to submit documentation of COVID-19 vaccination by November 22, 2021 or before appointment, if after November 22.
  • The agency will provide additional information regarding what COVID-19 vaccination information or documentation will be needed and how you can request of the agency a legally required exception from this requirement.

As always, I am available to talk with students or others about careers with NRCS, navigating USAJOBS, the application and selection process, and encourage anyone interested to contact me. 

Thank you for your time and attention. Be well,

Energy Action Network is Hiring Summer Interns

Energy Action Network (EAN) is now accepting applications for our summer internship program for 2 college students (rising juniors or seniors) or graduate students. The program, run by EAN Senior Fellow Christine Donovan with support from EAN staff, gives the interns a broad introduction to the energy community in Vermont, while supporting them to do focused research. Last year’s EAN interns performed vital research on energy equity in Vermont. This year we are looking for interns who will develop and carry out a defined research, writing, or social media project directly related to the ongoing work of EAN. Examples might include:

  • Conducting a piece of research or analysis that could support the work of the Vermont Climate Council, expand the EAN Emissions Pathways Model, or be featured in the EAN 2022 Annual Progress report.  
  • Researching and writing a series of case studies describing energy policies and initiatives in other states addressing issues of energy inequity or equitable GHG reduction strategies, and analyzing how they might apply in Vermont.  
  • Writing, editing, and producing a series of 5-minute videos highlighting key findings in the forthcoming 2020/21 Annual Progress Report. Develop and helping implement a statewide dissemination strategy.

Please pass this internship opportunity on to likely candidates. Deadline for applications is April 9.

Summer Undergraduate Clean Energy Advocacy Internships at Vermont Law School

The Institute for Energy and the Environment at Vermont Law School is again offering 2-3 summer internships for students in environmental studies and sciences who have at least completed their sophomore year by the start of the internship.  Our Clean Energy Advocacy Internships offer a chance for 2-3 students interested in future careers in clean energy advocacy to spend the summer with us at our Institute for Energy and the Environment (Summer 2021 internship is likely to be fully virtual again) and to work on one of our research or energy clinic teams which are each made up of 3-5 Master of Energy Regulation and Law grad students or JD students specializing in energy law with faculty supervision.  Our teams are currently working on Climate Justice issues ranging from advancing community solar for underserved communities and affordable net zero housing development to other important clean energy transition issues such as sustainable solar siting on agricultural lands and exploring energy and environmental policy issues around biodigesters for our Farm and Energy Initiative.   

Last summer we had three great virtual interns, from Siena College in New York, the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University in Minnesota, and a student with the Environmental Fellows Program at DePauw University in Indiana and we are excited to hear from you about why we should select one of your deserving students this year.

Clean energy advocacy interns are paid a $1,000 stipend (taxable), can take one of our two-week summer sessions energy classes for free (2 credits) and work with our faculty and masters/JD students on real clean energy projects. The internship begins June 1, the day after Memorial day, and ends Thursday, August 5th  (we have some flexibility in start/stop dates) which is the same as our summer environmental program.  Application materials include a current resume, cover letter explaining the student’s interest in a clean energy advocacy career, and one letter of recommendation from an undergraduate professor (they can follow other materials if necessary).  Applications are due via email by Monday, April 5th  at Noon (Eastern) to Molly Smith, IEE Program Coordinator, msmith@vermontlaw.edu . If you are interested in apply for this summer internship, please reach out to Tracy Himmel Isham (thimmeli@middlebury.edu) or Tim Mosehauer (tmosehau@middlebury.edu).
