UES Internships

UES Internships provide paid, summer positions for students to work with environmental organizations to improve environmental policy, address environmental concerns, develop plans for green spaces, and further efforts to protect our rivers and streams. Previous interns have worked at organizations such as the Freshwater Land Trust, Five Mile creek Greenway Partnership, Jones Valley Urban Farm, and Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve in Alabama; Green America in Washington, DC; the Tennessee Clean Water Network in Knoxville, Tennessee; and Technology 20/20 in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
