UHD SUSTAIN Scholarship Opportunity

Are you interested in Sustainability and a year-long paid program that helps you get education, skills and an internship that combines your degree and sustainability?

We have a couple of spots left in our UHD SUSTAIN program for qualified undergraduates of any major. A fall stipend of $500 will be paid out this summer, a spring stipend of $500, and a summer stipend of $2000 during a half-summer internship.

The program requires you to take a course in the second half of the summer and fall and there are Friday morning meetings throughout the year.

Please email for an application.

Summer Volunteer Opportunities at the Center for Urban Agriculture Sustainability (CUAS)

Once a week, every Wednesday morning 8am-11am learn about the vegetables we're growing this summer and help maintain our beautiful campus and nearby community gardens.

Once a week, every Tuesday afternoon 2pm - 3:30pm learn what the City of Houston recycles and help sort campus recycled material at CST in order for it to be processed.
