Subject: Internship Available at the Chesapeake Bay Trust

Description:
Internship Available at the Chesapeake Bay Trust – Spring Semester
(part-time) and Summer (full-time)
Applications will begin to be reviewed on December 4, 2013 and the position
will remain open until filled.

The Chesapeake Bay Trust, a non-profit, state-chartered grant-making
organization supported by the Treasure the Chesapeake (bay plate) license
plate program, seeks an intern interested in gaining experience in the
non-profit environmental sector. The participating intern will work at the
Chesapeake Bay Trust during the spring 2014 semester (January through May) at
a rate of $10 per hour, with a minimum of four hours per week and a maximum
of 10 hours per week and will transition in June to the Trust’s full-time,
ten-week summer internship program that offers a $3,000 stipend.  Duties at
the Trust during the spring semester include a variety of administrative
grant-related tasks on our portfolio of K-12 environmental education,
on-the-ground watershed and habitat restoration, and citizen engagement
projects, including K-12 environmental education grant review. Duties at the
Trust added during the summer months include some field work to assess
proposed and completed restoration projects and an independent project of the
student’s choosing related to watershed issues and aligned with the
Trust’s mission.  Independent projects completed by interns in the past
have been adapted for independent study credit through the student’s
university with university and professor permission.  Students gain a wide
range of skills for their resumes beyond traditional environmental
organization experience, including grant management and general experience
with grant-making and grant-writing.  Students also gain knowledge of and
experience with a subset of the 300 non-profit grantees we engage every year.

Eligible applicants must be undergraduate or graduate students attending a
two- or four-year college or university in Maryland with a GPA of 3.00 or
higher. In addition, all undergraduate applicants must be entering or
continuing their sophomore, junior, or senior year during the spring 2014
semester. Students of all majors are welcome to apply.

Interested students should send to Tara Baker ([log in to unmask],
410-974-2941 x102) a resume and cover letter that addresses a) what the
student hopes to gain from the experience and how it fits in with his/her
career goals, and b) what skills and experiences the student has that are
relevant to Trust goals.
