Internship Opportunities
Get Connected!

Emory’s Office of Sustainability Initiatives (OSI) hires undergraduate and graduate student interns throughout the school year and summer. Interns are paid hourly. During the academic year, qualified Rollins students may apply through the Rollins Earn and Learn (REAL) Program.

OSI relies heavily on the work of interns for research, benchmarking, implementation, and outreach in all areas of sustainability. Based on student interests and OSI’s needs, interns work on a variety of projects in the areas of energy, water, waste, transportation, food, green building and other sustainability initiatives. OSI does not have extra office space for students, so work is done remotely with regular meetings with staff to discuss projects. Interns will work 10-15 hours/week, depending on interns' schedules and OSI's needs.

We have filled all of our fall 2015 intern positions. There are none available at this time. Please check back in November or December for spring internship opportunities.
