If you are considering doing environmental research this summer – particularly if it’s local – apply for McKenna Internship!
Interns receive a $4500 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 up to 10 weeks duration with the sponsorship of a faculty member. You must still be enrolled at Bucknell; graduating seniors are NOT eligible unless you have committed to graduate school at Bucknell.
The McKenna program funds research from a wide variety of disciplines. 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.
All application materials are due by February 15, 2022.
Students may apply to both the McKenna program and PUR or other Bucknell summer research programs, but may not receive funding from both.
