Source: Resources for the Future (RFF), Summer Internships

Deadline: March 15, 2004 

Resources for the Future (RFF) specializes in research, policy analysis and public education on environmental, energy and natural resource issues. RFF has several paid summer internships for outstanding undergraduate and graduate students. The program is open to both U.S. and non-U.S. citizens. Internships are available beginning in June and ending in late August for a 10-week assignment. To meet individual needs, some flexibility in the beginning and ending dates is possible. Students will earn a stipend ($375 per week for graduate students; $350 per week for undergraduates). Housing assistance is not provided. 

Each intern selected can expect to work with one or more RFF researchers on a variety of ongoing projects, or assist in the development of entirely new areas of research and policy analysis. RFF's three research divisions are Energy and Natural Resources (ENR), Quality of the Environment (QE), and Risk, Resource and Environmental Management (RREM). All three divisions seek highly motivated candidates in the social and natural sciences. For positions in ENR and QE, applicants should be trained in economics and quantitative methods. RREM is particularly interested in candidates with a strong interest in public policy. Candidates for all divisions should have outstanding policy analysis and writing skills, and an interest in complex environmental policy problems amenable to interdisciplinary analysis. 

Students are urged to consult the listing of potential projects and skill areas for Summer 2004 Interns before applying to determine if they have a suitable background for those areas. 2004 Summer Research Projects are:
