C-StREAM Summer Internships
Chesapeake Research Consortium
CRC works with successful applicants (now identified as “C-StREAM Fellows”) to match them with meaningful summer internships and mentors at one of our partnering host institutions, with the goal of providing continued mentoring and support during the following academic year(s) and summer(s). To support this vision, CRC works to stay connected with the Fellows to provide guidance and support as students continue to navigate their individual track for success.
Each summer, the CRC and its partners support internships that provide students the opportunity to learn about/experience environmental careers within both science and management fields. The program focuses on careers that support the continued restoration of the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed, the Bay’s living resources, and the people who live and work within its bounty. C-StREAM Fellows have previously been hosted at the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office (NCBO) in Annapolisand Oxford, MD, at the Chesapeake Bay Program Office (CBPO) in Annapolis, MD, and within CRC’s seven CRC academic member institutions.
C-StREAM Fellows gain experience in natural resource management, restoration science, and environmental policy. Each internship internship experience provides insights into careers in natural resource management, policy development and science beyond those applied for and allows students to make connections with established environmental management and science professionals. Coupled with the experience gained from their summer work, C-StREAM Fellows are provided with professional development opportunities and training on subjects such as time management, effective communication and presentation skills, and developing compelling resumes and cover letters.
C-StREAM Fellows receive stipend payments as well as funding to support housing and transportation needs, occasional internship related travel, and professional development activities.
Applications are solicited annually between mid-December and mid-February of each academic year.
The summer 2021 C-StREAM internship program will begin Monday, May 24, 2021 and end Friday, August 13, 2021. These are our preferred dates, but the dates can be adjusted to accommodate a student’s school schedule if required. All C-StREAM Fellows will receive a stipend up to $6,000 ($500/week) for the equivalent of 12 weeks (480 hours) of full-time activities. Candidates should expect to follow a normal weekday work schedule (roughly 9-5, M-F) with occasional variations for possible field work or other activities. No benefits are provided. We offer assistance in arranging local housing if the position is an in-person opportunity if desired. A one-time housing and transportation allowance of $1,000 is available to each intern to assist with living and transportation expenses. Funds are also available to compensate interns for occasional work-related travel and professional development activities.
