Internships

Environmental Studies and Career Services are pleased to announce the launch of a searchable Environmental Studies Opportunity Database with nearly 200 entries and counting to aid students in their search for internship, research, and job opportunities. While we created this database with ES students in mind, it may be of use to any environmentally-inclined student regardless of major. We will send out an announcement to the full student body shortly, but please feel free to mention the database or send the link to any of your mentees who may find it of use.
 
You can access the database by following this linkThe 1st tab, "How to Use," predictably has information about how to use the database. The 2nd tab is the database itself. The 3rd tab, "Column Header Legend,"  provides additional information about what each column contains. The sites in this resource are searchable by keyword and filterable by a number of data columns including type of opportunity, geographic location, etc. In some cases, Eckerd students have previously completed an opportunity with an organization and those are flagged as "Previously Approved Internship Site," though we make it clear that Eckerd in no way endorses these organizations and that students must get independent approval to get credit for any internship or program. Opportunities such as these often change their information and websites, so we have included Google Forms where users can report broken links and suggest additions/updates (also available at the bottom or the "How To Use" tab). This is a work in progress; please let us know if you have any additional feedback or have any opportunity recommendations you'd like to see added to the database
