The George Perkins Marsh Institute offers a competitive internship program for Clark University undergraduate students interested in ocean, coastal and atmospheric research.
The program is sponsored by the George Perkins Marsh Institute in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science.
Through this program, scientists and managers with NOAA are partnering with Clark University to offer qualified undergraduate students paid summer field internships. Opportunities will be available in NOAA labs and offices nationwide, working in fields such as applied ocean and atmospheric science, policy, and science communication. Each student’s summer activities will be overseen by a NOAA scientist or manager, and advised by a Clark faculty mentor.
Internships will be offered in natural and social sciences, and are for approximately 10 weeks. Starting dates are flexible, but most internships will begin in June and end in August. Fellows will be selected on a competitive basis, and will receive a summer stipend of $4,500. U.S. citizenship is not required in general, but internships in some federal facilities are only open to those with U.S. citizenship or Green Cards.
Available internship opportunities and full application guidelines will be posted in January on the website of the George Perkins Marsh Institute.
