DENIN internships

Undergrads invited to apply for research opportunities by Oct. 7

The Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN) is now accepting applications for up to 15 paid undergraduate research internships focused on environmental topics during the 2016-17 academic year.

The purpose of the DENIN Environmental Scholars Program is to provide interested students with a sustained research experience over the academic year. Internships will begin Nov. 1 and will be carried out during the fall, winter and spring semesters.

The fall and spring semesters are a part-time commitment, while Winter Session is considered a full-time commitment for five weeks. Interns will receive a stipend of $3,000 and present the results of their work at a symposium in May 2017.

University of Delaware undergraduates from any major may apply; however, the focus of the research must be environmentally relevant.

Students with an interest in climate, sea level rise, water quality, land use, soil contamination/remediation, environmental sensing/monitoring, economics, ethics or environmental justice, history or policy are especially encouraged to apply.

Students are expected to identify a research topic and a faculty mentor on their own before they apply, according to Yolanda Williams-Bey, education program manager for DENIN.

Potential applicants will find complete information and access to online application materials at the DENIN Environmental Scholars webpage. All applicants are required to have a minimum 3.0 grade point average and must be current sophomores, juniors or seniors. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 7.

Students with questions about the DENIN Scholars program or the application process should contact Williams-Bey at yolanda@udel.edu.
