Promote professional development in new careers and expand leadership in their fields
Sea Grant Undergraduate Opportunities
Sea Grant internships and fellowships allow students to partner with various STEM organizations to promote professional development in new careers and expand leadership in their fields.
Community Engaged Internship for Undergraduate Students
The Community Engaged Internship is designed for undergraduate students from underrepresented and indigenous communities. The overarching goal of this internship program is to broaden participation in marine and coastal professions by providing training and mentorship to the next generation of scientists, decision makers and citizens. The program will do so by recruiting, retaining and engaging diverse students in place-based research, extension, education and/or communication that respects and integrates local ways of knowing.
