An intern measures a fish while on board a research vessel. Interns can help NOAA scientists with their work, and can gain knowledge and experience in the process. This intern helped the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office with field work to quantify how fish use restored oyster reefs.

College students: Are you considering a career in marine biology, oceanography, environmental education, climate science, or a related field? We invite you to apply for one of the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office’s six summer 2021 internships. Applications for all six internships are due by February 20. 

These paid internships will run from mid-May through mid-August. Due to health and safety concerns, we do not know yet whether these internships will be offered virtually or in person. Either way, we will offer great opportunities where interns gain knowledge and experience in a potential career area.
