Host an Undergraduate Intern
Host information and forms
Environmental studies undergraduate internships provide students with opportunities to gain experience and contribute to the host organization's projects and goals. Interns are required to work 50 hours for each credit-hour, up to 3 credits or 150 hours of work. This normally means working 10 hours per week in the 15-week Fall or Spring semester, or 15 hours per week during the 10-week summer term. However, other schedules are permitted when they do not exceed the maximum number of hours. Students receive college credit and are therefore not permitted by university policy to be paid by the sponsor, except to reimburse expenses.
The program’s success depends on your willingness to supervise and direct your intern in the following ways:
- Have a specific skill position or project in mind.
- Work with the student to establish concrete goals and objectives.
- Be willing to meet with your student to ensure he or she understands your expectations.
- Be willing to meet with your student to discuss his or her progress.
If you would like to host an intern, please complete the Internship Opportunity Form, and submit it to the Environmental Studies program at the e-mail address or fax number on the form.
Complete an Internship Agreement Form with your intern at the beginning of the internship. (The student then meets with the ENVS Internship Faculty Sponsor to have the Agreement approved and register for credit.)
Complete an Evaluation of your intern at the end of the internship.
