2023 Summer Fellowships

We are happy to let you know that the Environment and Sustainability Studies Program has once again partnered with the Center for Energy, Environment, and Sustainability to provide a limited number of ENV Summer Fellowships to support students involved in summer endeavors, including research or internships (either unpaid or partially unpaid) related to sustainability and/or the environment.  These endeavors may be creative and innovative in nature or research-centered (or both), and internships may be in either for-profit or not-for-profit organizations.  Internships should be 20-40 hours/week for 5-10 weeks.  Research agendas should be roughly the same.  We typically provide stipends to support student travel and living expenses, but we entertain other expenses associated with student research projects as well.  You do not need to be an ENV major or minor to apply.

To apply, complete the application form linked here, and be sure to upload a resume/CV and a detailed budget.  To receive funding you also will have to take the field safety workshop on April 7.  Applications should be received no later than April 7, 2022 by 5:00 p.m.  Please contact Dr. Velásquez Runk ( velasqj@wfu.edu), the Director of the Environmental Program, with any questions.
