PA Sea Grant Summer 2023 Undergraduate Internships – Mar 6

Posted by Pennsylvania Sea Grant on February 28, 2023

Pennsylvania Sea Grant is excited to offer three paid summer internship opportunities for undergraduate students seeking to gain experience in the areas of outreach, education, and economics.  Applications are now being accepted. Opportunities include evaluating the economic impacts of the Program’s activities;  assisting education program planning focused on climate literacy, educator professional development, and action-oriented stewardship projects; and assisting with aquatic invasive species (AIS) outreach materials and resources, and general outreach efforts to advance AIS education.

The purpose of the internships is to contribute to a diverse ocean and Great Lakes workforce that understands technical and social challenges facing coastal communities and the natural environment. The experience will help prepare undergraduate students for graduate school and careers in science, policy, management, and outreach focused on oceans, Great Lakes, and watersheds. Full details about the internship opportunity are available online.

“We are excited to offer this opportunity for undergraduate students whose career paths involve ocean, Great Lakes, and watershed-related concentrations,” says Sarah Whitney, Pennsylvania Sea Grant Director. “Internship opportunities like this support undergrad students, help individuals be better prepared for their next academic or professional step, and serve as a window into the variety of career paths within the broad field of science.”

The internships in Pennsylvania are part of the Community Engaged Internship (CEI) program, which is offered by Sea Grant programs across the country. This program encourages applicants from groups historically underrepresented in the sciences, including African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Hispanic and Latino, female, first-generation college students, veterans, LGBTQ+, and students with disabilities. In addition, the program welcomes applications from students who have worked to overcome educational or economic disadvantages or who have personal or family circumstances that may complicate their career paths.

Interviews will begin after March 6, 2023.  The positions will begin in early June 2023 into August 2023. Apply electronically. Applications will be reviewed until the positions are filled.

Pennsylvania Sea Grant also offers graduate level fellowships, early-career fellowships, research, and regionally based fellowship opportunities. Details about these opportunities are available online.
