Economics for Equity and the Environment Network Graduate Student Internship Program
Economics for Equity and the Environment Network (E3) is a national
network of economists developing and applying new economic arguments
for environmental protection with a social justice focus. As part of
its mission to support better applied economics research and to
involve economists more actively in environmental policy, E3 places
economics graduate students in internships with environmental
organizations during the summer months.
The internship program allows graduate students to discover first-hand
the real world issues confronting the environmental community and
explore avenues for their future research and professional
development. NGOs benefit from the expertise of the interns? training
in economics and gain greater appreciation for the role economics can
play in supporting environmental protection.
Recent interns have been placed with the Natural Resources Defense
Council, Union of Concerned Scientists, International Rivers Network,
Conservation Strategy Fund, Marine Conservation Biology Institute,
Clean Air-Cool Planet, Forest Guild, Stockholm Environment Institute,
New Voice for Business, Global Development and Environment Institute,
and The Trust for Public Land. You can learn more about our past
interns and their research at www.e3network.org.
E3 interns will be placed with an environmental organization for eight
weeks and will be paid a stipend of $5,000. E3 prioritizes graduate
students who are dedicated to applied economics research and who
support E3?s commitment to social justice.
