Subject:    Summer or Fall 2016 Research Internships

Date:        January 25, 2016

 

The College of the Environment offers internships for undergrad students to undertake research under the guidance of a Wesleyan faculty or other mentor during the Summer or Fall, 2016.  The projects must relate to any of the broad themes covered by Environmental Studies. These internships are available to students across the entire University regardless of major or class-year.  The internships may be undertaken at Wesleyan or off-campus.

The summer internship will run from May 25, 2016 – July 28, 2016.  Internships are also available for Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 semesters.  Fall internships may extend into the spring semester but Spring internships must be completed in the spring semester.

The deadline for applications is due on or before Monday, February 22, 2016, 5pm, allowing us to announce internship candidates by Friday, March 4th, prior to spring break. Student applications are to be delivered to Ms. Valerie Marinelli, Administrative Assistant, College of the Environment, 284 High Street.

The student application seeks two short letters of recommendation.  In addition to recommending the student, the faculty mentor must briefly (1-2 paragraphs) explain the project, its importance and relevance to her/his research program.  Letters of recommendation may either be sent to Ms. Marinelli through campus mail or by email (pdf preferred) to vmarinelli@wesleyan.edu.

The applications, including statements by faculty, will be judged by the oversight and awards committee.

For further information, please contact Valerie Marinelli at (860) 685-3733.
