CIGLR administers an annual Great Lakes Summer Fellows Program, in partnership with the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL). We place promising undergraduate and graduate students with both academic and federal research mentors. We will also consider post-baccalaureate or post-masters students who have graduated within the past 12 months of the fellowship, if the position fits directly within a student’s career or academic goals. Through this program, students work on substantive research issues in the Great Lakes and undergo a career training program that equips them with the knowledge and skills to be the next generation of Great Lakes scientists. Through this program, we seek to support diversity in Great Lakes research by valuing the wide range of identities, backgrounds, perspectives, and skills that enrich scientific exploration and help connect science with society. We strongly encourage applications from students who identify with groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in STEM careers.
This is a full-time, twelve-week position. Options exist for fully remote, hybrid, or fully in-person fellowship experiences.
- You must be either a U.S. citizen or permanent resident to be eligible for the program.
- The program is limited to currently-enrolled undergraduate (juniors and seniors as of Fall 2024) and graduate students (Master’s and Ph.D.).
- CIGLR will also consider post-baccalaureate or post-masters students who have graduated within the past 12 months of the fellowship (i.e., May 2023 or after), if the position fits directly within a student’s career or academic goals.
