Sustainable Bioproducts and Bioenergy Program seeks internship hosts

February 17, 2019 |

In North Carolina, with the goal of increasing awareness and interest of traditionally underrepresented groups in the bioeconomy, NCSU has established a professional development and certificate program called the Sustainable Bioprogram and Bioenergy Program. The program is funding with a USDA NIFA grant similar to CABLE.

The 18 participating undergraduate students represent colleges and universities across North Carolina and have a range of backgrounds including chemistry, biology, engineering, and environmental science. We are seeking internship positions for these students for Summer 2019 and our grant can fully fund their $8,000 stipend.

The Sustainable Bioproducts and Bioenergy Program (SBBP) will provide a diverse group of STEM undergraduate students with the knowledge, interdisciplinary tools, and hands-on experience necessary to advance America’s bioeconomy using plant-based and renewable bioproducts. The students’ two-year commitment consists of a series of courses centered on the bioeconomy and bioproducts and participation in a paid summer internship with a bioproducts industry partner.
