CIGLR is excited to announce the opening of our 2021 Great Lakes Summer Fellow applications!

The Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) announces the 2020 Great Lakes Summer Fellows Program, in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (GLERL). The Great Lakes Summer Fellows Program exposes students to a broad range of disciplines and provides an exciting opportunity for students to conduct research in the Great Lakes region under the mentorship of a CIGLR or GLERL scientist. We seek to use these fellowships to increase diversity in STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and math) and strongly encourage applications from students who identify with groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in government and academic workforces.

There are 8 full-time, 12-week positions paying $10,000 each. The fellowship program will be conducted virtually to ensure health and safety during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. CIGLR will ensure that all students have the computing resources needed to carry out their work. If local conditions and safety guidelines issued by NOAA and the University of Michigan allow, students may petition CIGLR to work in person. Students working in person will be located at the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL), 4840 South State Road, Ann Arbor, MI 48108, about 4 miles south of the University of Michigan central campus. The fellow accepted to Project 8 may choose in-person work at The Ohio State University or NOAA GLERL.

Applications are due 19 February 2021 at 11:59 pm (Eastern Time)More here on eligibility & how to apply: Application Information
