The Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant (IISG) Summer Student Internship Program provides undergraduate students opportunities to help address issues impacting coastal communities by combining social and environmental conservation science. Through this program, IISG’s interns will gain greater understanding of and skills related to a variety of practices that can help lead to Lake Michigan coastal communities making more informed decisions about resource management and everyday activities. These paid internships may include research, communications, and/or outreach activities. Applicants may have the opportunity to participate in activities (e.g., attending a professional conference) outside of their specific internship duties.
As part of this program, IISG offers required professional development trainings over the course of their employment, each intern will participate in professional development opportunities that will collectively require approximately eight hours or an average of one hour per week; one or more of the opportunities may take more than one hour, so in some weeks, no opportunities will be offered.
