Sustainable Stanford Internship Program

Are you ready to make an impact on campus sustainability?

The Sustainable Stanford Internship Program provides a paid opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience implementing programs that influence on-campus sustainability. Each intern will commit to a summer or academic year-long program working to manage a campus sustainability project and bring about tangible results. In addition to gaining experience in sustainability project design and implementation, interns gain exposure to sustainability careers and a network of program alumni.
