Biodiesel Interns

The Dickinson biodiesel interns come from diverse backgrounds with diverse interests. Students in programs across the curriculum are encouraged to apply for these hands-on living laboratory opportunities each semester. The Center for Sustainability Education supported paid student internships from 2010-2015.

Biodiesel production is now supported by Dickinson College Farm student workers.
