NOAA - Northern Gulf Institute Diversity Internship Program Seeks Mentors and Applicants

January 30, 2015

NOAA - Northern Gulf Institute Diversity Internship Program is currently seeking mentors and applicants to participate in the 2015 NOAA-NGI Diversity Internship Program.

The Program is a 10 week summer program for undergraduates and graduate students. It is designed to provide work experiences in a research setting and give students an understanding of research, data & data management, NOAA & NGI, and the Gulf of Mexico. The specific discipline for these internships is very broad. In past years, students have conducted projects in marine science, oceanography, engineering, social science, information science, science communication. This year we are adding environmental justice as a possible focus area.

We are looking for a few great mentors who can provide this research and work experience in their laboratories or field operations. We ask that the project be focused on the Gulf of Mexico, involve data in some way and that you take an active role in mentoring these students.

For more information on becoming a mentor, review the invitation letter and the project description form, or visit the program website.

The program solicits student interns (undergraduate and graduate) from groups underrepresented in the NOAA workforce. If you do know of potential applicants, please refer them to the program website where all application information and materials can be found.
