UBC Sustainability Scholars Program

Greenest City Scholars 2017 Cohort

Working with mentors at our partner organizations, UBC Sustainability Scholars are immersed in real world learning where they can apply their research skills and contribute to the advancement of our partner organisations’ sustainability goals.

How does the program work?

The UBC Sustainability Scholars Program facilitates paid internship opportunities for UBC graduate students from all academic disciplines.

Each successful student applicant works on a specific project on a part-time basis over the summer term from May through August. The projects are designed to be completed within 250 hours for which Scholars receive $20 per hour.

Our Summer 2018 intake will begin February 2, 2018.
