Provides Oregon students and businesses the opportunity to connect sustainability with workforce development, measurable savings and businesses assistance.
This program places paid interns across Oregon to conduct pollution prevention and sustainability projects at no cost to the businesses. The Oregon Sea Grant administers the program through partnerships with Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, Oregon Department of Energy, Portland State University, University of Oregon and Oregon State University.
In 2017-18 the program placed 12 interns with businesses through a pilot program using an EPA Pollution Prevention grant. Future program implementation is dependent on identifying and obtaining non-grant funding.
Your donation will go towards program management and student’s stipends/modest travel support during their full-time, ten week internship.
