Oregon Sea Grant Undergraduate Summer Scholars Program

Applications due February 22, 2016

Oregon Sea Grant is excited to announce our sixth annual Summer Scholars Program for eligible undergraduates. This ten-week program places high caliber undergraduate students from around the country with public agencies (federal, state, and local) to provide students with hands-on experience under the mentorship of a career professional. In addition to supporting agency programs and initiatives, the goals of the program are to offer students professional skills, agency workplace experience, and real life practice in marine science, policy, management, and outreach.

Summer Scholar Obligations and Activities: Student Scholars will be placed with the Oregon Sea Grant Program, a federal or state agency, or non-governmental organization, and will assist host agencies with field work, lab work, analysis, research, policy development, and/or outreach and public engagement efforts. They will be assigned to a specific project under a mentor and will be expected to dedicate at least 40 hours a week to the program.

Eligibility: Any undergraduate student who will have completed the equivalent of two years of full time study by June 13, 2016 and who is currently enrolled in any U.S. college or university, or who will have graduated during the 2015-2016 academic year, may apply. Students from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
