Looking for a summer intern?

Summer interns can offer a great way to explore opportunities in energy, water, and waste reduction that you may not have had the time to investigate. Manufacturing facilities should consider working with the Maryland Manufacturing Extension Partnership Intern Program, which will help manage the internship application process including the screening and initial interviews and then match students with manufacturers based on their needs. Learn more here and contact

EDF Climate Corps is another organization that matches students with companies to help accelerate their sustainability goals.

If you are looking for an intern or know of students seeking practical experience in reducing environmental impacts and saving money, consider posting want ads and resumes on the Maryland Green Registry LinkedIn Group.
