We’re doubling the number of student interns ACSF is sending into the field this summer, thanks to new internship support from David and Pat Atkinson and Jill and Ken Iscol. Eleven Cornell undergrads and grad students will work as Atkinson Center summer research fellows at Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and Oceana offices in Boston; New York; Washington, D.C.; San Francisco; and Monterey, California.

The interns will contribute to environmental advocacy on marine conservation, climate change and air quality, sustainable agriculture, and environmental communication. Three of the 2015 interns are pictured above (left to right): Yafi Shafer-Sull, Abhinav Vijay, and Samar Deen.

The new funding from the Atkinsons and Iscols expands a long-standing sustainability internship program supported by Jill and Ken Iscol.
