Summer Intern Applications Open!

The NC State Center for Marine Sciences and Technology (CMAST) is now accepting applications for summer intern programs. These programs provide great opportunities for undergraduate students to receive a paid internship while doing hands-on research with faculty and graduate students at CMAST.

Each student intern will:

-Design a summer research project addressing current issues in marine and coastal science

-Participate in research implementation, data analysis, and effective presentation of results

-Gain an understanding for the logistical challenges, ethical issues, and positive rewards surrounding environmental research.

CMAST summer intern programs are designed to broaden access and participation in undergraduate marine science education. The McClelan-Green Summer Fellows Program is open to all North Carolina undergraduate students at the university, college or community college level. The Bob Simpson Scholars Program is open all undergraduate students who identify as belonging to groups typically underrepresented in marine science.

The ten-week summer research programs run from May 30 through August 4, 2023. Interns receive a weekly stipend and onsite housing is available at CMAST Coastal Quarters.
