I think that it can inspire other schools to start their own program. Thank you for your posting.

Unfortunately, due to severe budget restrictions, it isn’t certain yet the extent of the program for next year. The best thing to do is to research the Pathways Program and stay tuned in case ECP does receive full funding.

Sophia, would it blatantly state “ECP” on the USAjobs site when something is listed? I am worried I’ve missed the opportunity to try this program.

I’ve emailed the EPA multiple times asking for information regarding the ECP with no response. Alas, the said job listings still have yet to materialize.

I guess this program isn’t happening this year?

I’ve been interested in the Environmental Careers Program for some time and have been carefully watching USA jobs for any listings for it (the website says they will be posted in March and April) but haven’t seen any. I was worried that the program wasn’t available anymore.

I’m looking forward to future posts.

Thanks for responding Claire. The Pathways Program will incorporate some existing internship programs and expand others.

I too am currently involved in a fellowship program at Treasury as an IRS public affairs specialist. So far I’ve had a great experience.

It’s important to note, however, that many of these internship-type programs are undergoing major changes and being folded into Pathway Programs … This should not deter anyone, just an FYI for those who exploring these opportunities.
