The NOAA-NGI Diversity Internship Program provides an
exciting scientific educational opportunity for undergraduate and graduate
students. These internships provide career exploration in a variety of fields
studied by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Northern
Gulf Institute (NGI) scientists including coastal science, fisheries
management, climate change, ecosystem management, engineering and
socio-economic data analysis. Interns work with leading scientists and experts
in their fields at their respective research institutions and laboratories
while participating in locally relevant research. NOAA and NGI scientists as
well as subject-matter experts from federal, regional and state laboratories and
agencies act as mentors and facilitate intern research.
This 10-week summer internship, beginning May 20, 2014, is open
to undergraduate and graduate students who are currently enrolled in a
degree-granting program. There is an emphasis on students from communities
and institutions in the northern Gulf of Mexico (nGOM) region, and individuals
from demographic groups underrepresented in the NOAA workforce are especially
encouraged to apply. Students from all scientific disciplines, as well as
education and engineering, are eligible for these competitive internships.
Scientific disciplines include biological, physical, environmental,
information, computer and social sciences.
