Student Projects & Internships

Choosing a topic to explore as part of a student project or internship is often the easy part; finding mentors in the field, however, can be daunting! RIRRC has experienced professionals in the fields of:

  • Engineering
  • Environmental Science
  • Public Policy
  • Planning
  • Program Management
  • Education and Outreach
  • Communication

We welcome the opportunity to work with RI students, from Middle School to Grad School to Continuing Ed! That being said, don’t forget that we are working professionals, and your urgency is not our emergency—this means you should be contacting us at least two weeks in advance of your first due date, or at least a month in advance of your internship start date. Please fill out the form below to tell us about yourself, your school, and the support you are seeking from RIRRC.



Here’s the info we have for your group! You can’t edit these fields, but you can leave comments in the text box that follows.

Please provide us with basic information about your group so we can create its profile. You will then be asked to enter information about yourself, and your specific request. For future requests, your group will come up as an option to select.
