GFDL offers limited internship opportunities each summer for undergraduate students. We offer qualified students a chance to work with a scientist-mentor on a research project.
The lab participates in these programs:
- NOAA's Ernest F. Hollings Scholarship Program
- Princeton's Energy Grand Challenges undergraduate internship program
Interested students are encouraged to review the requirements for the Hollings and Grand Challenges programs and, if interested, apply directly to those programs.
We also have our own internship program. To apply directly for a GFDL internship, please send a cover letter stating your qualifications and areas of interest, with a resume, to Kenneth Nock (Human Resources Assistant). All general inquiries about any undergraduate internship program should also be directed to Mr. Nock.
