Hello Dr. Hood,

I am the Education and Outreach Coordinator for the Cooperative Institute for Climate, Ocean, and Ecosystem Studies (CICOES) at the University of Washington and I manage our summer internship program. Each year we select 10-12 undergraduate students and match them with a research project and mentor at UW or NOAA in Seattle. Students will receive a stipend of $5,400 and, if in-person research is possible, CICOES will cover travel expenses and provide a place to live on UW campus.

If you know any UAS students who might be interested please send them our information – details and application materials can be found on our website – or have them contact me at jedthom@uw.edu. Applications are due February 1, 2021. 

Under normal circumstances many of our projects involve hands-on experience in the field or laboratory, however, last year’s program had to be done entirely online. I’ve been hoping to be back to in-person research this summer but there’s a good chance we will be operating remotely again, at least for the first four or five weeks. Either way, the program is still a go.

Thank you for your help,

Jed

Hello Eran,

We connected last year regarding internship opportunities at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center (AWCC) and opportunities for students to earn credit through internships. I am reaching out because we have posted our 2021 naturalist internship opportunities. In the past our interns earning credit towards their studies have worked on projects that involved writing and presenting educational programs about wildlife to our guests or students. I would be happy to talk with you or any prospective applicants about project options and answer any questions.

I have included a position description as an attachment to this email, along with a flyer, and a picture of a past intern. I am hopeful you will share the opportunity with any students who may be a good fit and benefit from the opportunity. The description along with instructions on how to apply can also be found on our website here: https://www.alaskawildlife.org/internship-program/

We are accepting applications now through February 15th. We are hoping to find students who can commit a minimum of 12 weeks between May and August. We have housing available on site and this internship is a paid opportunity. Please let me know if you have any questions, and feel free to pass on my contact to any interested students.

Best wishes and happy new year,
