The Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant (IISG) Summer Internship Program provides undergraduate students opportunities to help address issues impacting coastal communities by combining social and environmental conservation sciences. Through this program, IISG’s interns will gain knowledge and skills in practices that help Lake Michigan coastal communities make 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. Throughout their employment, each intern will participate in professional development opportunities that will require approximately eight hours or one hour per week; one or more of the sessions may take more than an hour, so in some weeks, no training will be offered.

All interns in the IISG program will be paid $17.00 per hour and work up to 37.5 hours per week for a minimum of eight weeks (June 3–July 26). Additional weeks may be available at the discretion of each intern’s mentor and are noted in the position description. Occasional work during evenings and/or weekends may be required. Each intern will be a student employee of Purdue University or the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Application packets are due by February 5, 2024, 11:59 p.m. ET. Successful applications will be notified of their acceptance by March 29, 2024, 5:00 p.m. ET.
