The Frances Humphrey Howard Internship Program

EFI’s Internship Program is named in honor of Frances Humphrey Howard, sister of the former Vice President of the United States, Hubert H. Humphrey.  Frances was a ““benevolent tornado” and dedicated friend of the Foundation.  She served as an Advisor to EFI from its incorporation in 1970, and as a Trustee from 2000 until her death on September 23, 2002. Since then, EFI has been proud to continue its Internship Program in honor of this woman of boundless interest in and commitment to students.

Because EFI’s educational program is multi-disciplinary, it provides an opportunity for college and university students to work with Foundation Trustees and Advisors on a wide range of issues.

Our work focuses on understanding the inter-relationships among social, economic and environmental problems and identification and development of integrated, sustainable solutions. This provides opportunities for interns to perform research in areas of particular interest to them, while helping develop educational materials that will actually be used by their peers, as well as governmental agencies, NGOs and the private sector.

Internships are available during summer months and also part-time during academic semesters. Interns may work at EFI or remotely at other facilities under the supervision of an EFI Trustee or Advisor.
