Summer Undergrad Internships at Woods Hole

The Woods Hole Partnership Program is accepting applications for the 2021 summer undergrad internship research program. Application materials and program information are available on the PEP website.

The program dates are May 29 through August 7. Application deadline is February 13.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, it is uncertain whether we will be able to host students for a residency program in Woods Hole in 2021. We are keeping open the option of a residency program but we also are prepared to offer a virtual program if that is necessary. 
In 2020 we offered a successful virtual PEP that provided students with all the major program components, including a four-credit course, a research project, and a series of career-building and cohort-building activities. 

For 2021 we will accept a class of interns in March and will announce by the end of April whether the program will include residency in Woods Hole. The program will provide a $5000 stipend and tuition for PEP’s four-credit course offered in the first four weeks of the program. If we are able to bring students to Woods Hole, the program also will cover all students’ costs for travel, housing, and food.

NOAA CIMES Undergraduate Internships

Applications are currently being accepted for summer internships at the NOAA-funded Cooperative Institute for Modeling the Earth System (CIMES) at Princeton University and NOAA-GFDL. Applications are currently being accepted with a deadline of January 15th, 2021. This year we have projects on a wide variety of topics, ranging from ENSO to fisheries to icebergs, with details given on the website Interns receive a stipend, housing allowance, and travel expenses, and depending on the circumstances associated with the pandemic, all projects may be done remotely if needed. The goal of the intern program is to broaden participation in climate and earth-system science and we specifically encourage applications from STEM students with little or no prior research experience.
