About the Internship Program

This 10-week immersive program provides undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to have an impact in Ceres’ environmental mission that tackles the world’s largest sustainability challenges, including climate change, water scarcity and pollution, and human rights abuses. Interns are embedded into Ceres’ teams to work alongside a supervisor to support learning, training, and organization navigation. For the duration of the program, students meet regularly with their leader to discuss development and support through biweekly check-ins, a midterm check-in, and a final review. Interns can expect to complete a presentation at the end of the work program to showcase their experience at Ceres.

This role is a temporary, part-time (15-20 hours per week) position that is remote or may be based in Boston, MA or San Francisco, CA. Candidates must be flexible to work with employees in all US time zones.
