The Environmental Justice (EJ) Summer Scholars program is a paid, annual internship sponsored by the Center for Community Engagement, Environmental Justice and Health (CEEJH). The program will select up to 20 undergraduate students enrolled in colleges and universities in the mid-Atlantic region (DC, MD, VA and DE) who are passionate about environmental and climate justice.
Over 10 weeks, students will be paid $5,000 and gain skills in research, science communication, community science, capacity building, and their own career planning. Workshops and training will be provided virtually, with some fieldwork experiences offered in person.
Depending on skills and interests, students may help with deploying air quality sensors in partner communities, data analysis and visualization, development of educational and outreach materials, refinement of EJ mapping tools and other support for ongoing research.
This program is made possible with funding from Meta. Read about the inaugural class of EJ Summer Scholars.
The application cycle is currently closed, but will reopen in Spring 2023.
