Princeton in Africa Fellowships

I’d say that one of the only downsides to this job is learning about all the awesome opportunities out there that I am no longer eligible for. For instance: Princeton in Africa (PiAf), which offers yearlong fellowship opportunities with a variety of organizations that work across the African continent. PiAf Fellows work in service-oriented positions in many different fields, including humanitarian aid, public health, conservation, and education. The more I checked in to this fellowship to write about it the more I wanted to apply. I ran into this inspiring blog, Beyond the Gate, featuring first-person perspectives from recent alums […]

Earth Day Internships from One Day, One Internship

Green Mountain Energy Internships By Willy Franzen on Thursday, April 22, 2010 So, I don’t think that I’ve taken note of Earth Day since elementary school… or last year when I wrote a post about New Leaf Paper. Yes, I may seem a bit ambivalent about a holiday started by hippies, but I really do care about the environment (so much though that I’m taking a few days off next week to head out into the woods and go fishing). Today is the 40th Earth Day, and I have to say it’s amazing how far we’ve come in fighting pollution. […]

Happy Earth Day! Now here’s how to find a green job… Much of the world marks the 41st annual Earth Day today.
