A summer internship between trainees’ first and second years in doctoral study will bridge university training with the needs of Sustainable Oceans partners by providing trainees with first-hand experience in addressing real-world problems. Non-academic organizations benefit because¬†internships provide ongoing access to the best available science and a pool of experienced, well-trained future employees and colleagues.

Potential internships might consist of covering scientific components of policymaking in marine science or incorporating science into policy decisions at sponsors such as…

  • the California Ocean Protection Council
  • NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center
  • UC Center Sacramento
  • UC Center in Washington, DC
  • Resources for the Future in Washington, DC

Funded trainees will receive stipends during the internship and all trainees will receive relocation costs, if needed.
