Internship Opportunities in Environmental Education

Environmental Education Internship in Marine Science

2015 Dates Coming Soon!

Spend an exciting summer learning about marine science!

The Discovery Hall Programs at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab has two summer internships available forundergraduates (juniors, seniors, or recent graduates) from minority groups currently under-represented in marine science and environmental education.  Interns assist the DHP education staff in our many summer programs for K-12 students, teachers and the public. Interns will work with the educators assisting in all aspects of logistics, planning, classroom prep, and teaching.  In addition, there will be an opportunity for the interns to teach in outreach programs off campus.  This is a wonderful opportunity for science education majors to learn more about environmental education, marine science, and the Gulf coast while living at the beach!    

The successful candidate should be interested in marine science and environmental education and have completed a minimum of one year of biology or education. Interns live in the Sea Lab dorms, and are expected to work some nights and weekends. Interns should be able to swim and have a valid US drivers license. Many activities take place outside, and interns should be capable of handling some strenuous physical activity, and high heat and humidity.

Each internship includes a stipend ($3500), and room and board.
