Vermont Natural Resources Council


Greetings!  My name is Alex, and I’m the Office Coordinator here at the Vermont Natural Resources Council (VNRC).  We just began our search for this year’s Mollie Beattie intern, and I am trying to figure out the best way to reach qualified and interested Williams College students and alumni.
The Mollie Beattie Internship is a paid internship (up to $5,020 for approximately 8-10 weeks of work) for graduate-level students or recent graduates who intend to pursue a career in environmental science or natural resources policy or law.  We’re hoping to secure a commitment by mid-March, but the internship itself will run sometime between June and August.  You can view the full description at our website:

VNRC offers two paid internships every year – the Legislative Internship (which runs January through May) and the Mollie Beattie Internship (usually 8-10 weeks in the summer/fall) – but we also take on legal interns and program interns on an as-needed basis.  We would like to do a better job with our outreach efforts; while we always advertise our listings on Handshake, the response is usually not great.  I’m hoping to find a more direct route to the students that might most be interested, hence this email.  Any and all assistance spreading the word is greatly appreciated.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  Thanks!
