At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

EEOP Student Summer Internship Program

The Environmental Education Outreach Program (EEOP) is looking for students who would like an opportunity to participate in a 10-week Student Summer Internship Program. The internship program is focused on air quality projects and issues in Indian Country. Some examples include: emission inventories, climate change assessment and planning, education/outreach on air issues, and indoor air quality for homes and schools.

Host sites are generally tribal environmental offices or EPA offices working on tribal issues. Students will be able to review potential host sites on the EEOP webpage after January 15th, 2011 and provide feedback on their preferred positions.

This is a paid internship. The EEOP budget covers a stipend up to 4,000 dollars over the 10-week period, as well as housing and travel stipends for the intern. The host site provides a project and supervision for the intern. The student online application deadline is February 15, 2011, with an additional week to complete the remainder of the application.

The EEOP staff is looking for two types of student applications. The level 1 application will be for less experienced students, usually a freshman and sophomore in college. This may be the first internship for a less experienced student. Level 1 students will only compete with other similar students for the level 1 positions. The level 2 application will be for students with more experience, typically juniors, seniors, and graduate students.

Visit the website for more information or for application details.
