Academic Level:
For most summer research programs, this is your upcoming status as of the fall. Always check with the individual program's website for details.

Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior

Note: this opportunity encourages applications from community college students.

Description:
Summer research opportunities are available for 10-12 undergraduate interns through the Cooperative Institute for Climate, Ocean, and Ecosystem Sciences (formerly know as JISAO). Interns are matched with a research project within one of CICOES's nine research themes and work with a University of Washington or NOAA scientist at either the UW campus or the NOAA Northwest Regional Center in Seattle. Students will receive a stipend of $600 per week ($5,400 for the summer). CICOES also covers the cost of travel to and from Seattle and provides housing on the University of Washington campus.

As a CICOES research intern you will work closely with a mentor, often within the context of a research team, to conduct a research project related to you specific interests. Depending on the project, the summer may involve hands-on experience in the field or laboratory, or both.

At the end of the summer interns will design a research poster displaying the results of their work. They will also create a three-minute video summarizing their experience over the summer. Each intern will present their poster and video during a program the final week of the internship that will be open to the CICOES community as well as student's family and friends.
