SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency has developed a 12-week, paid internship program for students in technical fields who want to see regulatory work in the field.
Agency Director John Kim says the Engineering, Science and Law Internship Program is open to college juniors and seniors and those pursuing graduate studies in engineering, chemistry, natural science and other science disciplines, as well as in law.
There are internships available in four IEPA areas: six in engineering and two each in chemistry and related fields, natural sciences and the legal department.
The internships have been developed by scaling down the former Governor’s Environmental Corps program into a smaller, more intensive experience for students close to moving into permanent employment.
All internships will be at the IEPA’s headquarters or laboratory in Springfield. Applications must be received by Feb. 28.
