Internship Program

E3 Network’s internship program offers graduate students in economics the opportunity to engage real world environmental issues during the summer months. Interns are paired with other economists in the E3 Network and/or with non-profit organizations to conduct research during the summer months. Recent interns have worked with the World Wildlife Fund, Environmental Defense Fund, Food and Water Watch, Natural Resources Defense Council, Union of Concerned Scientists, International Rivers Network, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, Conservation Strategy Fund, Marine Conservation Biology Institute, Clean Air-Cool Planet, Forest Guild, Center for Environment and Population, Stockholm Environment Institute, Global Development and Environment Institute, Ecotrust, and The Trust for Public Land.

The typical length of an E3 network internship is 8 weeks during the summer months. We offer interns a competitive stipend, mentorship, and a supportive learning environment. In most cases, applicants will be expected to relocate as part of their internship.

The internship program is open to graduate students in economics, environmental/natural resource economics, ecological economics, and sustainable business/finance. E3 Network prioritizes graduate students with proven research skills and demonstrated commitment to environmental protection
