Michigan Sea Grant Environmental Internship Program

Description

Michigan Sea Grant is initiating an undergraduate internship program that will coordinate and fund undergraduate students from any accredited community college, college, or university in Michigan to work with private businesses, state and federal agencies, environmental non-profit organizations, or university faculty to plan or implement environmental stewardship in the Great Lakes.

Through this internship program, undergraduate students may propose projects they are interested in working on related to Great Lakes stewardship with sponsor organizations that will provide guidance and support for their research projects. 

Michigan Sea Grant encourages applicants from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from economically or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. Michigan Sea Grant is committed to diversity and multiculturalism through staff training and organizational development for employees to help them provide effective and inclusive programs for the diverse residents of Michigan’s communities.

Eligible Applicants

Applicants should be enrolled undergraduate students at any level of study. Preference will be given to students who plan to pursue a career in environmental science. Additionally, preference will be given to applicants who have created an internship with an organization outside of an academic setting. Funding is available for up to eight students in the summer of 2019.
