UNH Students Prove Pollution Prevention is Good Business
P2 Internship Costs
This program is a paid internship. The cost covers an intern-training program at UNH, a stipend for the ten-week placement, intern support activities, and UNH/DES support during the project period. Intern sharing is also possible. Here is a quote from a participating business touting the benefits the program: "The fresh technical capabilities in a flexible individual allow for almost immediate involvement in a project that benefits both parties. The intern gets to employ skills and develop a comfort level while applying them as the facility gets a fresh perspective." Joseph M. Webb, Teledyne HALCO.
