The Green Fund Intern will manage the Green Fund program throughout the application, implementation, and reporting process. This includes collaborating with applicants, project winners, members of the Office of Sustainability, and the Green Fund Committee.

Intern is expected to work 8-11 hours a week, working additional hours when there are significant deadlines and especially during the final presentation week in mid-December. These hours will occur primarily during business hours (M-F, 9 AM – 5 PM), and preferably in-person in our office on the Medford Campus.
The Tufts Office of Sustainability is seeking a student to conduct research on various sustainability topics and programs. This will be almost 100% computer work, involving researching a specific topic relevant to our work and writing a concise memo that includes a summary section with recommendations, or collecting and reporting on data for specific programs. A guide to the memo format will be provided. Example research topics include: how to implement sustainability into the academic curriculum, other institutions’ sustainable procurement policies, or evaluating the impact of educational and outreach programming.
