SAP Global Summer Internship

Cup of tea sits next to loose tea leaves

Application Deadline: January 15, 2023

Spend your summer as an intern steeped in the tea industry of India. 

Ethical Tea Partnership – India

Host Organization: Ethical Tea Partnership

India produces over a fifth of the world's tea and Indian tea is crucial to most tea blends. The Ethical Tea Partnership (ETP) has been working in India to create a positive impact in the country's tea industry, including the economics of tea, equality for women and young people who work in the tea industry, and the environmental sustainability of tea. Their vision is to tackle deep-rooted, complex issues through systemic change. 

As an intern with ETP, you will engage directly with smallholder tea farmers and tea estate workers to explore issues of sustainability, poverty, and human rights. This hands-on experience is especially valuable for students in environment & sustainability studies, global development, or integrative plant science. 


Students will receive a stipend for participating in the internship.


To apply, you must be:

  • A rising sophomore, junior, or senior at Cornell.
  • In good standing academically with a cumulative 3.0 GPA minimum and have no unresolved disciplinary charges or sanctions.
  • Enrolled in an undergraduate degree program at the time of the internship.


Students must be able to commit to working full time for the duration of the internship. Interns are not permitted to hold other full-time jobs. Selected interns must participate fully in pre-departure and post-internship sessions, as well as complete any required reflections and evaluations.

How to Apply

Submit your application by January 15, 2023, and select “Ethical Tea Partnership” as one of your top three choices.
