September 17, 2014– The Delaware Environmental Institute is now accepting applications for up to 20 paid undergraduate research internships focused on environmental topics during the 2014-15 academic year.

The purpose of the DENIN Environmental Scholars Program is to provide interested students with a sustained research experience over the academic year.

University of Delaware undergraduates from any major may apply; however, the focus of the research must be environmentally relevant.
