The WRRC is looking for a student with excellent writing skills and an interest in water issues for a summer internship. The intern will draft the WRRC's annual Arroyo, a recognized source of objective, accurate, and understandable information on a critical Arizona water issue. The Arroyo will draw on the WRRC's 2019 Annual Conference, "Arizona Runs on Water: Scarcity, Challenges, and Community-based Solutions" and will be based on conference materials, interviews, and public information resources.

How to apply: 

Email the following documents:

- The completed application form (available below!)

- One writing sample

The writing sample may be on any topic, but it should not be a technical report.  Word length – not more than 1000 words (Applicants are strongly advised to look at previous WRRC Arroyos at http://wrrc.arizona.edu/publications/arroyo for style.)

- One letter of recommendation from a faculty member familiar with your writing.

The application asks you to list water-related classes and other experience you may have had with water issues.  Familiarity with Arizona water issues is desirable but not required. 

You may attach a CV or resume, but lack of a resume will not affect consideration of your application.

Letters of recommendation may be emailed either with the application materials or separately. Letters emailed separately from the application should include the applicant’s name in the subject line.
