Longer days and sunny skies mean it’s not only time for outdoor adventures but also for Earth Economics’ summer internship program! This summer we are fortunate to have interns supporting a range of projects, from assessing expenditures of whale watchers to mapping barriers along salmon streams to researching investments in community health.
Earth Economics has long managed a robust internship program that provides training and practical experience to undergraduate and post-doc students. Internship experiences have motivated graduate degrees, new career focuses and passions, and long term positions with Earth Economics.
