Learn about the Marine Studies Initiative (MSI) Internship Opportunities summer coastal projects that focus on interdisciplinary ocean and coasts topics.

This event gives all of our summer interns (50+) an opportunity to share the research and scholarship from multiple programs and partnerships in a poster session format while enhancing their skills in communicating scientific ideas and findings to wider audiences. As many of the trainees will be presenting for the first time, they will value the support of the Hatfield community. Featured programs include:
