The internship will be based out of our office in Downtown Brooklyn, but will involve travel to PowerShift in October. This position will be stipended.

Applications will be accepted until August 2, or until the position is filled.  Please submit a cover letter and resume to organize@endowmentethics.org to be considered for the internship.  Any questions can also be directed to Lauren and Rose, at organize@endowmentethics.org.
