Summer Internship Opportunity Supporting Wisconsin Native Nations

The Wisconsin Sea Grant Summer 2021 Internship Program includes projects focused on supporting Native Nations of Wisconsin!

The Program is a paid 10-week experience that places college undergraduate students with outreach or communications specialists on issues affecting coastal and water resources in Wisconsin. It provides a diversity of students with hands-on experience under the mentorship of a career professional. Interns will assist mentors with field work, analyses, research and/or outreach and public engagement efforts. The goal of the Wisconsin Sea Grant Summer Internship Program is to contribute to a diverse workforce that understands technical and social challenges facing coastal communities and the natural environment. The program helps prepare undergraduate students for graduate school, as well as careers in aquatic sciences and outreach.

Selected students will be awarded a $5,000 stipend. Need-based assistance grants may be available to help offset travel and living expenses.
