E-M:/ NOAA 2007 Student Summer Fellowships

2007 Great Lakes Summer Student Fellowship Program
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA), Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL), and the Cooperative Institute for Limnology and Ecosystems Research (CILER), administered by the University of Michigan, announce their 2007 Great Lakes Summer Student Fellowship Program.

We seek to fill twenty-three (23) full-time, twelve-week positions ( Fellowship Position Descriptions). Preference is given to currently enrolled or just-graduated undergraduates, although graduate student applications will also be considered. Successful applicants will receive a stipend of $5,000 for the twelve-week fellowship. The start dates for these positions are either 11-May or 08-June, although alternative schedules may be permitted.

This fellowship program provides students with an exciting opportunity to conduct research in the Great Lakes region under the mentorship of an individual scientist or professional. Summer fellowships are available in a broad range of fields including Aquatic Ecology (including Fisheries Ecology), Computer Programming, Maritime Archaeology, Satellite Data Processing, and Communication/ Outreach. Details on the individual fellowship opportunities are listed here [ click here]. Most fellows will be located at the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory in Ann Arbor, Michigan as guest students of the University of Michigan; a few fellows will be located at other sites, including Muskegon, MI, Milwaukee, WI, and Alpena, MI.
As part of this opportunity, fellows will give an oral presentation (or provide a written report) at the end of their fellowship period. In addition, University credit for the experience may be arranged either through the University of Michigan or through your home institution. Details for obtaining university credit will be provided with acceptance letters.

Fellows will need to cover the cost of their housing for the summer, although assistance will be provided for Ann Arbor fellows in finding affordable summer housing options.
