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 the development of future leaders of the marine environment. We continue to believe that by investing in special young people, through exposure to a broad array of activities in the underwater community with access to 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.

The OWUSS plans to offer several internships in North America next summer.  Internship details are listed below.  More internships may be offered, so please check this website periodically for updates. The application deadline was 1 December 2018. Applications for the DAN Diver’s Safety Education Internship have re-opened and are now due by 1 December 2018.
