An exciting opportunity to work in area of Environment and Sustainable Development across 41 locations in the country with one of the leading non-profit organizations.

Editor’s note: – While it seems like an obviously relevant internship opportunity for political science, law and public policy, Humanities and liberal arts students, I would think that for other streams students too (especially those with IAS dreams, political aspirations or even MBA as career goal), this could be a meaningful internship. Having this experience on your CV may help you differentiate yourself from the rest and is usually looked upon favorably by the admission committees or employers.

    @jayatheja
    A bit tricky to answer as Sustainable Development and Environmental Education are now part of Civil Engineering curriculum but still it would not be as technical an internship as say working in a design office or on a site.

    Why don’t you write to aparna.susarala@ceeindia.org and find out more about project details which may help you decide?

    Thanks

    Dear Sarvesh,

    Are internships also extended to international students? I am an NRI finishing a BA in Env. Science in may and will be starting a MS in Water Management and Hydrologic Sciences in the Fall. I’d love to get involved with CEE, it sounds perfectly fitting to my personal as well as career goals. Let me know!

    Thanks,

      Best would be to check with Aparna whose email address is given in the link. From organization stand point, I don’t think there should be a problem but from work Visa stand point, how does this work out, I am not sure – if you find out, do let me know.

      Thanks

      It’s a rolling internship meaning there is no last date to apply – depending on candidates availability internships are offered round the year. So go ahead and apply!

      My understanding was that they have centres in 41 locations all over India and some of them must be in south (the complete list is available at the same link) but yes, not all the localtions may have an internship requirement. Did you check with her on what (if any) projects are available at other south India centres of CEE other than Coimbatore?

      If you liked the blog, would you like to help Internshala reach out to more and more students by sharing the link (www.internshala.com) with your friends on facebook/google/yahoo groups?

      Wish you all the best!

    Hi ,
    I have completed my B.E in Civil Engg in the month June, 2013 and want to pursue my higher studies in the field of Environmental Studies. I delivered a seminar which was a part of my curriculum during my B.E final year on ‘ELECTRONIC WASTE MANAGEMENT’ and I opted for ‘SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT’ as my elective during my final year.

    I came across the site : cee.org where I found your email Id’s. I am very much interested in applying for the internship that your orgainsation offers. Can you please let me know as to when can I apply for the same for Bangalore Location. Currently I am working as a Trainee with NIWARA builders in my native, Belgaum, from August, 2013. Thanks.

    Regards,
