Student Summer Internship (SSI) Program

Internships:
The Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals offers two types of internships for Native American and other college students. The student summer internship (SSI) program is a 8-week program for college students and the short internship (SIP) program is a 20 to 40 hour long internship program for high school and college students. The purpose of the internship programs is for students to gain hands-on skills with EPA or other governmental and tribal environmental offices. The internship programs are funded by a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Julia Hnilicka was an intern at the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2019. Julia placed air quality monitors in rural parts of Alaska. Julia had the following to say about her internship experience, “Air quality is an important part of healthy lives and although Alaska is pretty free of human made air pollution, wildfire smoke can have huge health impacts. Our elders in Alaska are particularly susceptible to health impacts when it comes to smoke or dust inhalation. Our wildfire seasons can be long and intense, the more data we can compile and use for the future, the bigger positive health benefit we can create […] I would strongly encourage other students to apply and work with ITEP, not only are they focused on exciting projects, but they also take special care and consideration with their interns. I will look back on the summer of 2019 as not only hot and smoky, but also incredibly impactful on my education and future.”

Meet our interns and learn about their projects.
