Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name],

I’ve long admired your company’s environmental efforts and am interested in applying for the summer internship your company offers to students majoring in environmental-related fields. [Name of friend] notified me about this chance after participating in the program two years ago.

I am in my final year at [Name of University], majoring in [Environmental Public Policy]. I have:

  1. Worked every summer for the past three years as a volunteer in my city’s environmental awareness program
  2. Participated in framing environmental policy decisions for the city
  3. A particular interested in public art

Your business is one of the most ecologically conscious and long-lasting in the state. It would be an honor to participate in your program and add to my qualifications in terms of environmental policy design. Supporting public art, in my opinion, would improve your company’s profile, and I know how to make that happen.

I’ve attached a copy of my resume. I’m hoping that it will show you that I am a good fit for this internship. I’ll call you next week to answer any questions you might have and schedule an interview.

Thank you for taking the time to review my application. I am looking forward to speaking with you shortly. You can reach me by phone at [(555) 123-4567] or email at [name@email.com].
