The SSC Internship Program

Each summer, we team up with local colleges and universities (like those at Georgetown University, American University, and George Washington University) to recruit a cadre of interns, who will work on a variety of SSC projects. They delve into carbon footprinting, sustainability reporting, sustainability assessments, and training and facilitation--working directly on client projects in close cooperation with SSC leadership.

This internship program is run directly through local universities, and we do NOT accept applications directly. 


Research Interns

Research interns help on a variety of sustainability topics and work closely with lead consultants to provide background material for ongoing consulting projects. Past assignments have included working on client “Green Office Audit” projects, researching stakeholder engagement in the mining industry, creating case studies on “green” supply chains, and developing surveys for employee satisfaction. If you have strong research and analysis skills, and can quickly gather and summarize data into its salient points, this is a great opportunity to dabble in a variety of sustainability topics.
