Student Opportunities

For Undergraduate Students

Michigan Sea Grant is initiating a summer internship program for undergraduate students to work with a partner school, organization, or business to pursue a research project related to Great Lakes environmental stewardship. Funding is available for up to eight students the summer of 2019. Application details and submission deadline available at the link below.

For Graduate Students

Michigan Sea Grant coordinates several fellowships for the national program office and outside organizations. These are paid 1-2 year fellowships that are typically for graduate students. The fellowships recruit students with a strong interest in marine and Great Lakes issues from a wide range of backgrounds, including, natural science, policy and law. Applications may be submitted online and are due in January and February, depending on the opportunity.

The Application Process

Fellowship applicants go through a two-stage selection process. Michigan Sea Grant reviews all applicants from Michigan and then recommends several candidates for consideration by the national program office or sponsoring organization. During the initial application process, students do not need to secure a letter of endorsement from the Michigan Sea Grant director, but they should submit all other required application materials by the deadline. Process varies slightly by fellowship opportunity, see specific fellowship page for complete details.
