Inclusive NOAA Fisheries Internships (IN FISH) is a program offered in a partnership with NOAA’s research partners in academia and non-governmental research institutions. IN FISH is a 10-week paid undergraduate internship that provides course work, career-building activities, and a research or management project with a mentor in a NOAA lab or office, or in a lab with one the IN FISH partner institutions. The 2022 IN FISH! program will run from June 1 through August 13, beginning with an orientation and a two–week course (“Complex Systems and Ecosystems Dynamics”) offered at the NOAA Fisheries laboratory in Sandy Hook New Jersey. Two-hours of academic credit are available through the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. After the course, IN FISH interns will be in residency at their assigned research lab or office. IN FISH provides a $5,000 stipend and also covers travel, lodgings, food, tuition and course supplies. If pandemic conditions make residency impossible, the 2022 IN FISH program will be offered virtually.  Applications are due in mid-February, 2022

The Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) administers an annual Great Lakes Summer Fellows Program, in partnership with the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL). This program helps place promising undergraduate (junior or senior as of Fall 2021*) and graduate students with both academic and federal research mentors. Through this program, students work on substantive research issues in the Great Lakes and undergo a career training program that equips them with the knowledge and skills to be the next generation of Great Lakes scientists. We seek to use these fellowships to increase diversity in STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and math) and strongly encourage applications from students who identify with groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in government and academic workforces.

GLOBE is excited to host the 2021 GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium (IVSS)! The IVSS is a way for primary through undergraduate students from all GLOBE countries to showcase their research and hard work. With GLOBE, students learn the practices of science through hands-on investigations in their own communities, sparking their curiosity and interest in science. This often leads to inquiries that help solve real-world problems and further understanding of our global environment. It's time for your students to show the world what they've learned!

Important date: The IVSS informational webinar offsite link is on October 7, 2020, at 11 am Eastern.
