Some examples include: emission inventories, climate change assessment and planning, education/outreach on air issues, and indoor air quality for homes and schools. Students will be able to review potential host sites on the EEOP webpage after January 15th, 2011 and provide feedback on their preferred positions. <><> This is a paid internship. The EEOP budget covers a stipend up to 4,000 dollars over the 10-week period, as well as housing and travel stipends for the intern. The host site provides a project and supervision for the intern. The student online application deadline is February 15, 2011, with an additional week to complete the remainder of the application. <><> The EEOP staff is looking for two types of student applications.
