10:48 a.m., March 4, 2011----The Sustainable Coastal Communities Program at UD is accepting applications from undergraduate students interested in an opportunity to work on coastal land use issues in Sussex County this summer.
Students will join staff from the Delaware Sea Grant College Program, Delaware Cooperative Extension Service and UD's Institute for Public Administration to work on various projects that will help Sussex County government and local municipalities address the impacts of growth and development, stimulate economic development and promote quality of life in Southern Delaware.
All students who have an interest in local community issues are welcome to apply, but students with backgrounds in economics, social science, history, natural resources, environmental science, public policy, agriculture and political science are especially encouraged. University of Delaware applicants will be given priority, but students from other institutions may apply.
The program is seeking three individuals who can work as a team, are self-motivated and can produce results during a 10-week program that will begin June 6 and end Aug. 12. Students will be required to reside in Sussex County during the fellowship and will receive a summer stipend of $5,000.
Send resume and cover letter by Friday, April 15, to [firstname.lastname@example.org] or:
