    Hi,
    I am a sophomore at Green Mountain College in Vermont majoring in Environmental Science. I wanted to apply for these internships but the link will not allow me access.
    Thanks, Forrest

    Apologies for the broken link, Forrest. Sometimes, links pasted from an Outlook email do not work. They should work now.

    You can always type in the URL in your browser and that should take you directly to the site.

    Good luck!
