REEF Marine Conservation Internship Funding

Our World Underwater Scholarship Society / REEF Marine Conservation Internship 

Each year, Our World Underwater Scholarship Society (OWUSS) supports five summer internships, one of them being the REEF Marine Conservation Internship in Key Largo. Through this exceptional opportunity, OWUSS provides a $2,000 stipend to cover travel and living expenses during the internship. 

Please visit the OWUSS website for more information and to apply. It is possible to apply for both the OWUSS/REEF Internship and the REEF Marine Conservation Internship so that you can be considered for the unpaid REEF Internship in case you are not selected for the OWUSS/REEF scholarship.
