Michigan Sea Grant Environmental Internship
Michigan Sea Grant’s undergraduate internship program coordinates and funds undergraduate students from any accredited community college, college, or university in Michigan to work with private businesses, local government, state and federal agencies, and environmental non-profit organizations, or university faculty to plan or implement environmental stewardship in the Great Lakes.
Through this internship program, undergraduate students may propose projects they are interested in working on related to Great Lakes stewardship with sponsor organizations that will provide guidance and support for their research projects. The internship should last two months, however, start and end dates are negotiable to accommodate academic semester or other recipient needs.
Michigan Sea Grant encourages applicants from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from economically or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. Michigan Sea Grant is committed to diversity and multiculturalism through staff training and organizational development for employees to help them provide effective and inclusive programs for the diverse residents of Michigan’s communities.
Applicants should be enrolled undergraduate students at any level of study. Preference will be given to students who plan to pursue a career in environmental science. Additionally, preference will be given to applicants who have created an internship with an organization outside of an academic setting, including a local government, state or federal agency.
