M&A is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the 2008 Summer Internship at the UA Water Resources Research Center (WRRC). The winner of this year’s award is Claire Landowski, who was selected from a total of 24 applicants. Claire is an undergraduate at the UA with a double major in Geoscience and Journalism. She has written for the Arizona Daily Star, served as news editor for a small monthly paper, and traveled to Antarctica on a National Science Foundation grant.
The M&A Summer Internship at the WRRC was inaugurated this year to give a student an opportunity to gain experience researching and writing about water and environmental science and policy for the general public. We will be seeking opportunities for Claire to get some additional “real-world” experience by participating in M&A projects. She will also write an article for Arroyo, a WRRC publication that focuses on critical Arizona water issues, published annually in the winter. Applications for the 2009 M&A Summer Internship at the WRRC will be solicited beginning in March.
