NYU Office of Sustainability Green Grants Program- Intern Needed

The Office of Sustainability is seeking an unpaid Intern for the Fall 2010 semester to aid in the strategic revitalization of its Green Grant Program, a unique granting system that supports NYU student, staff, and faculty projects to improve NYU's environmental performance. The student will be working closely with Max Liboiron, the Green Grant Program Coordinator, to research, analyze and make thoughtful recommendations for the program.

Skills Required:

* experience in interviewing stakeholders and/or creating and analyzing surveys
* operational analysis skills
* quantitative and qualitative analysis skills
* the ability to work independently
* interest in and familiarity with environmental problems and solutions
* clear, concise and articulate writing skills
* expertise with Microsoft Office Suite

5-10 hours a week, somewhat flexible schedule

Tasks will include:
* survey former and current Green Grantees (of both successful and unsuccessful projects)
* survey the larger NYU community to see what students, staff, and faculty expect from a granting body
* analyse successful and unsuccessful projects for major trends
* do a quantitative analysis of NYU's Green Grant program compared to other citizen (non-expert) environmental grants from post-secondary institutions, including a comparison of rates of completion
* make recommendations for how to brand/outreach the program
* recommend a new strategy for how the grants are run so as to have the highest completion rate possible while maintaining accessibility for all members of the NYU community
