For more than 30 years the Our World-Underwater Scholarship Society® (OWUSS) has offered a variety of experience-based internships. Our goal is to foster development of the future leaders of the marine environment. We continue to believe that by investing in special young people, by exposing them to a broad array of activities in the underwater community and giving them opportunities to work with influential people who are leaders in aquatic disciplines, we are investing in the future of our oceans and lakes.
The OWUSS Summer internships are offered for a 1 to 3 month period and are primarily directed at college undergraduates and graduating seniors. Internship recipients will receive a grant to help fund travel to/from site, room and board, and a stipend to cover living expenses.
For the summer of 2015, the OWUSS plans to offer several internships in North America. Internship details are listed below. More internships may be offered, so please check this website periodically for updates. The application deadline is January 31, 2015. Applications will open in August-September for the 2015 class.
