Coastal Resilience Summer Internships

Virginia Sea Grant, in partnership with AECOM, Arcadis, Clark Nexsen, Dewberry, and Moffat & Nichol is excited to support a range of paid summer internship opportunities focused on coastal resiliency. These opportunities are open to full-time students and are aimed at training students to become leaders in innovative, pre-disaster, resiliency design strategies. Selected interns will engage in a range of activities and projects related to resilient design and/or coastal flooding adaptation strategies. Opportunities exist throughout the summer to participate in resilience programs with VASG and to collaborate and network with institutional partners, and members of the resilience and adaptation community.

The internship partners are committed to building inclusive research, extension, communication and education programs that serve people with diverse backgrounds, circumstances, needs, perspectives, and ways of thinking. Diversity includes, but is not limited to, age, race, ethnicity, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability and/or health status, religion, veteran status, geographic origin, and socio-economic status. Applicants enrolled at a Virginia institution and those with prior internship experience are encouraged to apply.
