2018 Internships at CEP!

The Climate + Energy Project (CEP) is a statewide nonprofit working diligently toward a sustainable energy future in Kansas. CEP interns and volunteers play a vital role in this ambitious undertaking.


CEP interns get an opportunity to apply their knowledge in areas of legislature, journalism, renewable energy, energy efficiency, climate change and public health. While internships are unpaid we feel the exposure and knowledge gained to be invaluable in launching a career in the environmental field.
