The E2/P2 Intern Program is a nonregulatory, summer program designed to link top-level engineering and environmental sciences students with business and industry. Collaborations focus on projects to reduce energy use, emissions and wastes, benefiting the company bottom line and the Kansas environment. Students work with a technical advisor from PPI and a host company to research E2/P2 projects that reduce or eliminate –

Industrial Environmental Sustainability Practices
Monday, January 13, 2014 - Wednesday, January 15, 2014
This January intersession is offered for credit or no-credit. Qualified applicants planning to apply for the Pollution Prevention (P2) Intern summer positions, or industry professionals on energy or green teams, are encouraged to participate. The class provides valuable training for the type of project work conducted by P2 interns, and can give the applicant an advantage with regard to specific environmental experience. Students and industry professionals are invited to participate in this new January intersession, offered for credit or non-credit at no-cost. Register on-line or contact 800-578-8898 for more information.
E2/P2 interns research effective waste-reducing solutions which help companies reduce operating costs, regulatory compliance burdens, and their environmental footprint. Through these projects, students gain hands-on experience in an industrial setting plus an understanding of pollution prevention strategies as value-added options for problem solving and environmental management.
Businesses gain well-developed, specific options for improved operating efficiency, cost savings, reduced waste, and decreased regulatory burden. If your business wants to explore P2 opportunities for your operations, but lacks time or resources, the PPI P2 Intern Program is a unique opportunity to make headway on that new project!
Student and business application screening for the next summer begins at the end of January and continues until positions are filled. If you are interested in participating, please complete the Business Application or Student Application and send or fax it to the PPI Intern Coordinator by January 31.
Financial support—Interns receive up to $14/hour and gain an education in pollution prevention—knowledge of this environmental principle will be advantageous to any future career. Many E2/P2 internships throughout the United States have resulted in employment offers from host companies. Participating businesses and the PPI share the cost of the intern’s wages.
Students enrolled in engineering or science programs at an accredited college or university in Kansas and who have at least a “junior” standing by the start of their internship summer, can apply for an intern position.
Application screening begins January 31 and continues until positions are filled. Complete the Student Application or Business Application. You need the free Acrobat Reader to view and print the pdf file, or you may get a copy of the application by sending an e-mail request to the PPI program’s administrative assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Completed business and student applications should be sent or faxed to:
