Research on Adaptation to Climate Change Undergraduate Summer InternshipsBookmark This
VT ESPCoR Center for Workforce Development and Diversity
One Winooski Park
DescriptionThe VT EPSCoR Center for Workforce Development and Diversity works to cultivate and prepare students in science, technology, engineering and math and social science (STEM) fields. Through integrating students and teachers into active research we inspire students to pursue STEM careers. The CWDD helps connect interested students in social science and STEM areas with faculty researchers throughout Vermont at multiple institutions.
The Undergraduate Internship Program offers students the opportunity to participate in current research conducted through the Research on Adaptation to Climate Change (RACC) program. Undergraduates selected to participate in the RACC program will be matched with a research team of faculty and graduate students working on the transdisciplinary RACC research program. In April, students give an oral presentation or poster presentation of their research results. As part of this program, students do full-time research for 10 weeks with a faculty member in one of the following areas:
-Water Chemistry & Microbiology
-Land Use Management
-Environmental Policy & Management
