Summer in Maine- what are a few environmental studies students up to?
Meet a few Psi U Fellows

Posted July 01, 2014

The Environmental Studies program offers two fellowship programs that place ES majors in stipended summer internships - the Psi Upsilon Community Matters in Maine and Logan Environmental Fellowships and the Psi Upsilon Sustainability/Environmental Justice Fellowships.

Some of these students work with a Maine non-profit organization, or governmental agency to explore an environmental career that might be of interest to them. The Sustainability Fellowship provides students with the opportunity to explore the topic of sustainability by working directly with an organization, agency or company that is focusing on the transition to a more sustainable society. The Environmental Justice Fellowship provides the opportunity to explore the intersection of the environment with race, class and gender by working with a nonprofit organization or agency that is working creatively with stakeholders in these areas.
