    The United States Environmental Protection Agency in Washington, DC has openings for up to four undergraduate student interns to join its Green Chemistry Program during the month of January.

    During December, EPA will receive nominations for the 2010 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards; during January, EPA staff and interns will read all of the nominations, write brief reviews of each nomination, discuss the nominated technologies in multidisciplinary group meetings, and prepare the nominations for the anonymous judging panel convened by the American Chemical Society.
    Because the work is highly technical, interns need to have a strong science background including at least one year of organic chemistry.

    Interested students should send email to greenchemistry@epa.gov to request the more detailed description of the internship and the application requirements.
