EEA Academic Internship Program

2019 Summer Internship Positions are now posted. Continue to check this page for new postings. All applications should be submitted by March 29, 2019 Contact for more information.

We invite you to explore the internship opportunities available in Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) and hope you will consider joining us in the important work we do.

All internship positions are unpaid, but flexible schedules that range in the number of hours per week and length of internship are provided. Full-time students who have completed at least one year of college are eligible to apply. An interview is required as part of the selection process. Housing and transportation is the responsibility of the selected students.

Assigned internship responsibilities will be project specific and determined by each supervisor. Computer skills are necessary and some familiarity with MS Office Word, Excel, and Outlook is expected. Experience working with Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Excel and Access are a plus! Whenever possible, preference is given to those able to earn course credit as a result of their experience with EEA.

Every effort is taken to ensure that each intern finds their time at EEA a valuable learning experience. Toward that end, there is a regular speaker series during the summer session at which senior members of the staff and other professionals in the energy and environmental field present current program information and research. Interns are encouraged to attend the speaker series events as well as meetings beyond their specific project demands. Each participating student should gain a broad understanding of a number of clean energy and environmental issues as well as an appreciation for careers in public service.
