Economics for Equity and the Environment Network
Graduate Student Internship Program
Economics for Equity and the Environment Network (E3) is a national network of economists developing and applying new economic arguments for environmental protection with a social justice focus. As part of its mission to support better applied economics research and to involve economists more actively in environmental policy, E3 places economics graduate students in internships with environmental organizations during the summer months.
The internship program allows graduate students to discover first-hand the real world issues confronting the environmental community and explore avenues for their future research and professional development. NGOs benefit from the expertise of the interns' training in economics and gain greater appreciation for the role economics can play in supporting environmental protection.
Recent interns have been placed with the Natural Resources Defense Council, Union of Concerned Scientists, International Rivers Network, Conservation Strategy Fund, Marine Conservation Biology Institute, Clean Air-Cool Planet, Forest Guild, Stockholm Environment Institute, New Voice for Business, Global Development and Environment Institute, and The Trust for Public Land. You can learn more about our past interns and their research at www.e3network.org<http://www.e3network.org/>.
E3 interns will be placed with an environmental organization for eight weeks and will be paid a stipend of $5,000. E3 prioritizes graduate students who are dedicated to applied economics research and who support E3's commitment to social justice.
The deadline for applications for summer 2010 is March 1. To apply, please email the following information by the March 1 deadline to director at e3network.org<mailto:director at e3network.org>:
* Curriculum vita
* One letter of reference
* A three-page statement of your research interests and how they reflect a commitment to social justice
