Oregon Sea Grant’s graduate and undergraduate fellows and interns are sharing their summer experiences in marine science, policy and resource management in a new blog, Sea Grant Scholars.
Sea Grant annually places qualified university students and recent graduates in fellowships and internships with marine science labs, resource agencies and legislative bodies, in locations from the Oregon Coast to Washington, D.C. The positions offer those interested in marine science and resource management careers an opportunity to learn first-hand what those careers entail, while providing valuable support to scientists, managers and policy-makers on real-world projects.
