For Students

Undergraduate Students

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:

Interested students are encouraged to review the requirements for the Hollings and Grand Challenges programs and, if interested, apply directly to those programs.

For undergraduate students considering a graduate degree in disciplines related to climate, atmospheric sciences and oceanography, please see the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences program, a collaboration between GFDL and Princeton University.

Graduate Students

GFDL offers a unique program in partnership with Princeton University’s Geosciences Department, for graduate study in disciplines related to climate, atmospheric sciences and oceanography. Click here for more information.
