The ESF Career Fellowships are intended
to promote the career and professional
development of students at the State
University of New York College of

These Fellowships are made po
ssible by
the generous donations of alumni and

committed to solving environmental
challenges, and supporting students who
strive to do the same.
The ESF Career Fellowships support
internships, interdisciplinary projects, and
conference attendance for undergraduate
and graduate students. ESF Career

Internship Application Requirements
Application Cover Page
Personal information and information specific to the internship, including the site, internship
faculty sponsor, internship site supervisor, duration of the internship and internship summary.
Proposal
Provide an introduction to your internship and why it is important. Be sure to include internship
goals and objectives, what you're proposing to do, supervision/evaluation of internship, and
your professional ambitions/career goals. 1 page limit.
Budget Justification
The requested funds should match the duration of the internship. This is calculated using the
maximum hourly rate ($12/hour), the number of hours to be dedicated per week (max 40), and
ultimately the total amount of hours and funds necessary for the duration of the internship (max
12 weeks). This amount is for internships done with not-for-profit organizations. The Fellowship
will pay half of this amount for internships done with for-profit organizations.
Letter or Email of Support from Faculty Member (If for credit, typically the Faculty Sponsor)
The faculty member’s statement must explicitly discuss the following: (1) the start and end date
of the internship, (2) the relationship between the internship and the
student’s academic program of study, (3) the work to be accomplished, (4) the name
of the immediate internship host site supervisor, and (5) how the faculty will support
the student. Internships DO NOT need to be done for credit.
Letter of Support from Internship Host Site Supervisor
Statements must be written by the person who will directly supervise the internship, and should
explicitly discuss the following: (1) the start and end date of the internship, (2) the importance
of the internship, (3) the nature of the work to be accomplished, (4) how the internship will be
supervised, and (5) if it is a for-profit organization, an agreement to cover half of the intern pay
($6 per hour).
