McKenna Environmental Internship Summer Support

Have you heard of the McKenna Environmental Internship through Bucknell? Interns receive a $4000 (a change from $3500 in previous years) stipend and may arrange a free (but taxable) residence hall room during the summer participation period. Successful applicants will be expected to engage in an independent research project of 10 weeks duration with the sponsorship of a faculty member. Students must still be enrolled at Bucknell; graduating seniors are NOT eligible unless they have committed to attending graduate school at Bucknell.

Project proposals from a wide variety of disciplines will be considered for funding. Research efforts should fall under the general heading of environmental studies and should focus on the West Branch Susquehanna River Bio-region, although there is some flexibility with this latter criterion. You should contact potential advisors as soon as possible to discuss potential projects and begin proposal development.

Applications and more information can be found at this website. Questions should be directed to Professor Ellen Herman ( All application materials should go by email as MS Word or .pdf files to Ms. Carilee Dill ( by Friday, February 8, 2019.

Students may apply to both the McKenna program and PUR or other Bucknell summer research programs, but may not receive funding from both.
