Apply now to the NOAA Fisheries IN FISH summer internship program for undergraduates! This 10 week summer program offers college students the opportunity to gain valuable research experience in the fields of fisheries biology, marine and environmental resource management, and outreach and education. In addition to college credit and a $5,000 stipend, participants will also benefit from career building workshops, networking training, and professional development. Applications are due on February 10, 2023, and the acceptances will be announced in mid-March. The residential program runs from June 5 through August 11.
“The IN FISH program is designed to build a diverse cohort of students trained for careers with NOAA and NOAA Fisheries,” said Natalie Huff, director of the NOAA Fisheries Program for Equal Employment Opportunity and Diversity. “It is critical to NOAA’s success that our scientists and managers in the 21st century are drawn from the full range of talent in the country.”
“We are excited about putting together the next class of talented students who are considering careers in the kinds of science and management we do in NOAA Fisheries,” said Nicole Cabana, deputy director of the Northeast Fisheries Science Center. “We know that a lot of bright, hard-working undergraduates are interested in the work we do, and we look forward to hosting students from colleges and universities across the country, including Historically Black Colleges and Universities and other Minority Serving Institutions,” she said.
All undergraduate students who are enrolled in an undergraduate program during the application period and are U.S. citizens and U.S Nationals are eligible to apply and participate. African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Pacific Islanders, LGBTQ+, persons with disabilities, veterans, first-generation college students, and economically disadvantaged students are strongly encouraged to apply.
The IN FISH staff is available via video conference to answer questions and to talk with interested students and faculty. Inquiries about recruitment and application may be directed to the Academic Programs Office’s Help Desk.
