Included in Edna Bailey Sussman Fund
GW recently was notified that it will be included in the Edna Sussman Environmental Internship program, a great opportunity for students who are dedicated to environmental studies. GW intends to submit five students nominations from among its various environmental graduate programs, including the Environmental and Energy Management Program, with a deadline in early February 2007 for applications to be submitted. Additional information is provided below. Interested students should contact Prof. Deason at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
A recent meeting with trustees of the Sussman Foundation made clear that applicants should have serious environmental interests and career ambitions and need to propose a serious project that can be completed in a summer in affiliation with some agency or nonprofit in the US. Field research seemed especially welcome, but almost anything that would in some way contribute to an improved environment should be acceptable. Students need to nail down an internship site and get a letter from the person who will supervise their work, so time is of the essence.
