Student Internship Program

The UT Recycling Student Internship Program provides students with the opportunity to conduct research on a UT Recycling program or initiative of their choice. Student interns will benefit from a hands-on experience in an environmental organization and professional development training in these unpaid positions. This program will launch in Spring 2019.

This guide describes how the program is structured, provides a working timeline for Spring 2019, and defines possible research projects.

Please contact Megan Finan with any questions.

Apply here! Deadline to apply for Spring 2019 is January 10th, 2019. 

UT Recycling Student Internship Program Application

As applications come in, the Student Internship Advisor, Megan Finan, will meet with prospective student interns to discuss their environmental interests and to help define a research project. Afterward, Megan Finan will discuss the student and their research plan with Jay Price, UT Recycling Manager, to determine whether the student should become an intern. If Jay Price approves of their research plan, the student will be officially invited to become an intern. Student interns will then meet with Megan Finan to set up a research schedule and create a timeline for their research project. Other research project details will also be defined at this stage.
