A student interested in gaining experience writing about environmental and water issues will get an opportunity to do just that this summer in an internship sponsored by Montgomery & Associates, an Arizona-based consulting firm specializing in hydrology and water resource issues. The intern selected this year will contribute to research and writing of an issue of Arroyo on the topic of water desalination, its present and future role in Arizona. The Arroyo is the annual WRRC publication that focuses on a critical Arizona water issue for a wide and varied readership, including water professionals, researchers and government officials, as well as citizens interested in water issues.
All students in good standing at the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, and Northern Arizona University are eligible. The intern will work 20-25 hours per week during June and July at the WRRC offices in Tucson.
Applicants must complete an application form and submit it, along with a writing sample and a letter of recommendation. The 500-1,000 word writing sample may be on any topic, but it should avoid jargon and be understandable by general readers. Applications are due no laterthan 5:00p.m., Friday, April 16, and the selected candidate will be notified by April 30.
