Announcing Summer 2024 internship opportunities through the Yale Center on Climate Change and Health

January 9, 2024

The Yale Center on Climate Change and Health (YCCCH) is pleased to announce its 2024 Summer Internship Program, which matches Yale students with meaningful opportunities related to climate change and health research and practice. Initial applications are due Friday, February 9, 2024. You can view the internship sites/organizations and application information at the following Google Drive link.


  • Returning (non-graduating) Yale School of Public Health MPH students
  • Current (non-graduating) YCCCH Climate Change and Health Concentration Students 
  • Undergraduate Environmental Studies majors (non-graduating)
  • Current graduate students from the Yale School of the Environment


This is a two-stage application process:

  • Stage 1: Eligible students apply to be matched with a specific internship from the list of opportunities (see link).  To apply, students will submit all materials via Qualtrics. The Qualtrics form will ask you to:
    • Submit a cover letter addressed to the host organization that identifies your preferred project and describes the skills, experience, and perspective you would bring to the project. If there are required skills or eligibility criteria listed for that project, be sure to respond to those explicitly. You may apply to more than one internship; to do so, you must write one cover letter per internship project.
    • Include an up-to-date resume/CV and a transcript (unofficial is ok).
    • Stage 1 applications are due Friday, February 9, 2024 (11:59pm)
    • Each internship host will review its applications (some may also conduct interviews), and determine who to offer the internship to; YCCCH will relay offers to the applicants.
  • Stage 2: Students matched with a YCCCH internship apply for funding through YCCCH and other Yale summer funding opportunities. For YCCCH funding, specific application information will be provided when notified about the internship matching outcome. Students are also expected to apply for internship funding from other sources, since not all matched internships can be funded through YCCCH.
