Massachusetts Internship Opportunities
Massachusetts Clean Energy Internship Program
The Massachusetts Clean Energy Internship Program, run by Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) and the New England Clean Energy Council (NECEC), helps prepare the next generation of clean energy workers by connecting students and recent graduates with Massachusetts companies in need of interns. The Massachusetts Clean Energy Internship Program connects students who are interested in careers in the clean energy sector, with MassCEC providing stipends for interns during fall, spring and summer sessions. The program helps provide Massachusetts clean energy businesses with a talented pool of young professionals, who in turn are given valuable experience they can use as they begin their careers in this quickly-growing sector. Since its inception in 2011, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Internship Program has placed hundreds of students and recent graduates at clean energy companies across the Commonwealth, with dozens of those interns going on to receive full-time job opportunities at their host companies. To participate in the program, students and recent graduates must attend (or have attended) a Massachusetts college or university, or be a Massachusetts resident, with proof of residency, who attended an out-of-state college or university.
