Some interns have worked in the aquarium as assistant aquarists, caring for the animals and leading public collecting walks. Other interns have served as program assistants, helping to run the high school intern program.
Internships are competitive positions that provide undergraduates with summer employment opportunities at NEFSC laboratories in Woods Hole MA, Milford CT, Highlands NJ, and Orono ME.
Internship opportunities are posted in mid-winter and applications are usually due in February. Fellowships are awarded in March or April, depending on availability of funds.
