MERRILLVILLE | The U.S. Department of Energy's Clean Cities University Workforce Development Program is hiring up to 29 summer interns for positions across the nation, including Crown Point.
The internships are intended to pair students interested in alternative fuels and hybrid vehicles with Clean Cities coalitions.
Clean Cities works to reduce the nation's dependence on foreign oil and petroleum consumption in transportation while promoting environmental and energy independence through the use of alternative fuels.
Two of the coalitions, South Shore Clean Cities and Wisconsin Clean Cities, are managed by Carl and Lorrie Lisek of Legacy Environmental Services Inc. in Merrillville.
Internships are 30 to 40 hours per week for 10 weeks and start around June 3. Stipends range from $3,600 to $6,000 depending on academic classification and the number of hours assigned by the coalition.
Interns will be notified by April 22 if they are selected.
Applications are being accepted through March 15. To get the application link or for more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
