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
This research experience for undergraduates offers paid summer undergraduate research internships at Colorado State University in the Department of Atmospheric Science. Interns participate in a paid 10 week program from early June through early August. During the program interns have the opportunity to attend scientific seminars, visit national scientific laboratories, and participate in a variety of professional development training.
Summer research opportunities are available for 10-12 undergraduate interns through the Cooperative Institute for Climate, Ocean, and Ecosystem Sciences (CICOES). Interns are matched with a research project within one of CICOES nine research themes and work with a CICOES, NOAA, or University of Washington (UW) scientist at either the UW campus or the NOAA Northwest Regional Center in Seattle. Students will receive a stipend of $600 per week ($5,400 for the summer). CICOES also covers the cost of travel to and from Seattle and provides housing on the University of Washington campus.
