Summer Fellowship Program

Are you looking for an expanded internship? The Alaska SeaLife Center (ASLC) is sponsoring a summer fellowship program for college students or graduates who are interested in gaining a one of a kind experience in a world-class marine facility. ASLC summer fellowships offer a well-rounded experience in a variety of areas within the Center. Depending on the type of fellowship, duties may include assisting aquarium, avian or marine mammal staff with animal husbandry tasks; helping with marine-related research projects or as support in our education department. Fellows will be required to participate in a variety of areas and all are required to participate to some extent in the interpretive aspects of our operation. Fellows will not be permitted to participate in ASLC activities on vessels unless specified in the fellowship.

If you have questions or would like more information on becoming a summer fellow at the Alaska SeaLife Center please email the volunteer coordinator.

The posting for the Summer fellowship is now CLOSED.
