During the Spring 2009 semester, Erica Christensen completed her internship with the Air Policy Office at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). "I was so lucky with my placement because I was able to experience the changes made by President Obama and witness the growing developments of climate policy. I learned more than I could have imagined and made great connections." She has also completed an unpaid internship with a political campaign and had a paid summer position with the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy. Christensen plans to attend graduate school for global environmental policy or sustainability.
Summer Academic Internships
Internships through the Summer Access and Diversity Internship Program will not be available for Summer 2013.
When possible, the University of Memphis Scholarship Committee provides funding for
undergraduate summer internships under the Student Affairs Access/Diversity Support
Awards. These funds helped to provide students with an opportunity for summer internships
both on the University campus as well as with non-profit community partners.
In addition to a stipend, students will receive academic credit for the internship.
Interested students should apply for the program by contacting Jodie Cherry at 678-3448
or firstname.lastname@example.org or see your academic advisor.
