Sea Grant's Community Engaged Fellowship Program
Education - Fellowships - CEI - Home

The Community Engaged Fellowship (CEI) is designed for undergraduate students from underrepresented and indigenous communities. The overarching goal of this internship program is to broaden participation in marine and coastal professions by providing training and mentorship to the next generation of scientists, decision makers and citizens. The program does so by recruiting, retaining and engaging diverse students in place-based research, extension, education and/or communication that respects and integrates local ways of knowing.  

Community Engaged Fellowship project fellows are provided with on-the-ground learning experience through a 8-10-week internship over the summer months. During this time, interns complete a project that extends the knowledge of community stakeholders to address a coastal, marine or Great Lakes issue of environmental, economic and/or social importance. Additionally, they participate in a series of CEI professional development and training opportunities.
