The Duke University Stanback Internship Program provides Duke students with project-based learning experiences in energy, conservation, advocacy, policy, research, law and applied resource management. The Internship Program is open to any Duke student - undergraduate, graduate, and international students - who will be enrolled in Fall 2019 classes. Internships are located throughout the US, and the internship is for 11-weeks and interns receive up to $6,000 stipend.
The majority of intern candidates will be Nicholas School students pursuing the degree of Master of Environmental Management (MEM) or Master of Forestry (MF). The MEM and MF degree programs stress interdisciplinary approaches to environmental problem solving. Program specialization tracks within the degrees include conservation science and policy, forest management, coastal management, environmental economics and policy, global environmental change, and water and air resources.
This Stanback internship is limited to Duke University students only. Students from the Duke Law School, Fuqua School of Business, Sanford School of Public Policy, Pratt School of Engineering, and other undergraduate programs are also invited to apply for Stanback internships.
