DE Sea Grant Internship Opportunity for Environmental Majors!

Delaware Sea Grant is supporting a pathway program for students considering environmental science and education majors (e.g. Environmental Science, Environmental Studies, Earth Science Education, Global Studies, Geography, Marine Science, Geology) at the University of Delaware, specifically focused on students in the University of Delaware Associate in Arts program and from Delaware Technical Community College. This internship program is intended to teach students science communication and teaching skills by co-creating activities and lessons on coastal environmental issues. The goal of the program is to provide critical skills for students that are interested in pursuing future careers in environmental and marine science education. This program is also available for students enrolled at Delaware State University.

This paid internship has two parts.  The first occurs during the summer from June 1, 2021 – August 6th.  Interns are expected to work 10 hrs/week, 5-6 hours asynchronously and 3-4 hrs during a synchronous online session.  The exact days and times of the synchronous meetings will be determined based on availability once the interns are selected. Interns will be paid at a pay rate of $15/hr (total compensation for students who complete summer and fall components will equal $1650).  At the end of the summer, students will present their work in a virtual showcase.  They will be paired with an environmental education professional to help refine their lessons, and then in the fall, students will present their material to K-12 students. Students at the University of Delaware who complete the program will also receive credit for ENVR464, an internship course with DLE designation.

All students are welcome, and underrepresented minorities in STEM and first-generation college students are strongly encouraged to apply. Please apply using this Google Form.
