The San Diego Chapter of AEP is committed to supporting students preparing for careers in the environmental field. The Student Chapter offers student-specific programs, awards annual scholarships, encourages internship placement, and hosts networking events for local undergraduate and graduate students. The goal of the Student Chapter is to create and provide a better network between students and the environmental professional community.

The CEQA Student Practicum is one of the best ways to get involved with professional members of the environmental field. Multiple experts discuss important CEQA topics, such as transportation, land use, and wildfires. Join others passionate for the environment and network with field experts!
The CEQA Student Practicum will occur later this year. Please stay tuned for further updates and reach out to Student Membership and Outreach Coordinator Anna Millar at email@example.com with any questions.
Each year, the San Diego AEP Chapter engages in several programs designed to prepare local university students for working in the environmental field. Student Chapter events are posted on the Student Chapter Facebook page as well as the Programs and Events page. Some of the great programs for students interested in the environmental field include:
The San Diego Chapter of AEP supports students who are preparing to pursue careers in the environmental field. We provide an active employment assistance program which functions as an intermediary between the students and the environmental business community at large. While AEP does not guarantee employment, every possible effort is made to assist students in pursuing work experience in the diverse environmental profession. The San Diego Chapter of AEP will accept and post internship opportunities for undergraduates and/or graduate students who are actively engaged in the pursuit of a career in a field with an environmental emphasis. Visit the Student Chapter Facebook page for information regarding internship opportunities.
Our local student chapters have strong individual and collective networks in San Diego to promote the AEP mission. The Student Chapter has their own Facebook page for student events and information. Contacts for local schools are provided below.
