Minority Student Conservation Intern Program

Published January 09, 2012

It may be cold outside, but it's never too early to start planning for summer! Are you a minority undergraduate student working toward a degree in environmental science, or know someone who is?

Starting February 2012, the National Aquarium will be recruiting applicants for the Minority Student Conservation Intern (MSCI) program. The MSCI program is a paid eight-week internship starting in June that focuses on unique hands-on conservation experiences.

In an effort to promote minority participation in conservation science, the National Aquarium has developed the MSCI program to provide science-based experiences for minority undergraduate college students. This program fosters an understanding, appreciation, and stewardship of aquatic habitats and the plants and animals they support.

Selected students are engaged in activities focused on habitat restoration through the Chesapeake Bay Initiative, as well as animal rehabilitation through the Animal Rescue program.
