Internships

Since 1990, the Center has offered a limited number of credit- and non-credit-based internships to qualified young adults.  The interdisciplinary approach bridges practical, hands-on work opportunities with individual CMPBS projects that draw on the interns' skills and interests.  Interns from many academic disciplines come to the Center between undergraduate and graduate programs, for a summer hands-on practicum, to fulfill academic internship requirements, and to enhance professional skills relating to sustainable planning and design.
2014/2015 INTERNS
How to Apply:
Interested candidates should submit a letter of interest, resume and references at least 2 months prior to the desired start date.  Because positions are limited, we encourage earlier applications (3 - 6 months in advance).  Applicants interested in working on design projects should submit a portfolio in addition to other application materials.  Applicants should be specific about availability.  We require a minimum of three months participation; however, we strongly suggest that applicants plan for an internship period of at least six months, as it allows for more in-depth exposure to CMPBS projects.  Interns are provided a modest stipend and basic living quarters on-site if needed.  Volunteers are also welcome to participate in various capacities ranging from construction, grounds management and maintenance to archival and research tasks.  For more information, please contact us at center@cmpbs.org.
