The Roy Family Summer Environmental Internship supports returning Kennedy School students interested in specific internships for public, private, or non-profit organizations abroad or in the United States.  These paid scholarships allow students to participate in innovative summer projects that would ordinarily not offer a salary.  There are four award recipients for 2012, and each received a $6,500 stipend to work with organizations that are not able to hire an intern.

Nick Bayard will work at the Liberian Ministry of Agriculture, where he will work on projects to increase agriculture production and food security. Leora Falk will work with the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental Science at the U.S. Department of State to ensure that adaptation remain a central part of climate change policies. At the Environment Directorate in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris Jasdeep Randhawa will develop case studies on economic approaches to water security. Ami Jean Valdemoro will develop a multi-year strategic sustainability plan for the My Shelter Foundation in the Philippines, which shows residents how to create inexpensive solar lightbulbs.
