We are excited to invite you to be part of this year's Environmental Internship Fund (EIF)leadership team! The Environmental Internship Fund (EIF) has been around for many years as a way to help raise funds to support YOUR summer internship opportunities. Although the Career & Professional Development Center (CPDC) is here to get you started and provide support along the way, this funding is raised through events and activities BY STUDENTS, FOR STUDENTS.
Our organizational meeting this MONDAYwill be a great chance to hear from a past EIF leader and brainstorm ideas for how your class will beat all previous records for fundraising this year! Attending the meeting MONDAY? REGISTER HERE!
If you participate, you are given priority in the funding application process coming in the spring.
In addition, this is a great opportunity to build your experiences to showcase on your resume: event planning, relationships with sponsors/partners, grant applications, fundraising, marketing, and managing people. According to previous EIF participants, one of the best parts of being involved is being able to connect as students, a school, and a community. What better way to enjoy your time gaining skills than to do so with friends. Bring your friends along to the meeting to begin brainstorming ways to fundraise.
Money AND friends AND resume-building opportunities? Yes!
In the past students have raised between $7,000-$15,000! Can you beat this? Yes you can!
