Wisconsin Sea Grant offering 10-week undergraduate summer internships

Story by Moira Harrington, Wisconsin Sea Grant

Wisconsin Sea Grant is offering four summer internships for undergraduates. The internships come with a $5,000 stipend and are centered on:

  • Helping tribal communities understand flooding vulnerability.
  • Sharing dangerous current information with Great Lakes beachgoers.
  • Cataloging plant species on University of Wisconsin-Green Bay-owned property through the lens of traditional ecological knowledge.
  • Communicating about Wisconsin farm-raised and wild-caught fish through videos, culinary exploration and social media.

Moira Harrington, Wisconsin Sea Grant’s associate director for communication, said, “Last year, we had an inaugural class of undergraduate interns. It was a positive 10 weeks for both the students and our staff members who acted as mentors for these young people who are now better prepared to join a workforce that makes a difference in aquatic sciences and outreach.”

Due to the ongoing pandemic and the program’s commitment to offering safe experiences, flexibility and understanding in the face of potentially changing work conditions, responsibilities and locations will be necessary.

The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. (CT), Thursday, Feb. 25. The program is particularly looking for a pool of applicants who reflect diverse backgrounds.

Wisconsin Sea Grant’s internships are part of Sea Grant’s Community Engaged Internship (CEI) for Undergraduate Students program. CEI serves as an umbrella under which Sea Grant programs may develop their own unique internship opportunities around the central theme of recruiting, retaining and engaging diverse students in place-based research, extension, education and/or communication that respects and integrates local ways of knowing.
