Baucus Climate Scholars Program

If you know a Montana college student who is interested in climate/environmental issues, the Baucus Institute has some awesome Summer 2023 opportunities for our Baucus Climate Scholars program.  Our website is still with UM, but we also opened offices in Bozeman this year and this program is open to any student enrolled in higher education at a Montana-based university or college. We’re working to be a state-wide Institute, with lots more MSU and tribal college participants.


Our Baucus Climate Scholars program places students in two-month internships with organizations such as The Nature Institute, The Climate Reality Project, Brookings Institute, and new this summer, the International Energy Agency in Paris! Our partner orgs are thrilled with their work, and students are getting publications, work experience, and networks to help in their careers.


Details and applications can be found at the baucus institute website

Deadline to apply is January 20, 2022.
