This 10-week summer internship will offer science communication and multimedia production training with the communications team at Maryland Sea Grant. We are seeking student applicants who are excited about helping to translate scientific topics related to the Chesapeake and Maryland Coastal Bays, and their watersheds.
The intern assist the communications team with the planning, production, and posting of multimedia assets for use on the program’s website, social media platforms, and online version of Chesapeake Quarterly magazine. They will also have the opportunity to work on the production of one full multimedia story, which may take the form of a video, animated short, or ArcGIS StoryMap. The topic of the stories will be co-developed by the intern and mentor.
This internship is part of the National Sea Grant Community-Engaged Internship (CEI) Program. CEI is designed to specifically engage students from underrepresented and indigenous communities. Applicants must be a current undergraduate from a Maryland or District of Columbia college or university seeking a degree in natural, social, or environmental sciences, environmental policy, or science communication. Applicants should have a demonstrated interest in science communication.
Applications will be accepted through April 3. Please see full details and application instructions on our website.
