‘Energize Colleges’ Sustainability Internships Available

October 10, 2017

UC Merced’s sustainability office is seeking undergraduate students who are thinking about careers in energy to fill this fall’s Energize Colleges internships.

UC Merced is one of 12 college and university campuses across California that offer undergraduate students internships through Energize Colleges, a workforce development and training program led by nonprofit Strategic Energy Innovations.

Each intern will be required to work on special projects for about 8-10 hours per week and will earn $15 per hour. Positions will begin in late October.

This fall’s Energize Colleges internships are in the following sustainability-related career pathways: climate communication, biochar, gears for electric motor (GEM), green labs initiative, green office program, zero waste initiative, and engineering.

UC Merced students interested in an internship are encouraged to apply online via CatLink and search for the internship title that interests you, or contact Energize Colleges fellow Mark Bachofer at mbachofer@ucmerced.edu.
