DENIN Academic Scholars

The DENIN Environmental Scholars Program is a paid undergraduate research internship that provides interested students with a sustained environmental research experience during the academic year. Scholars work with faculty research mentors at the University of Delaware. Students may select from projects at the following webpage. The broad theme of the opportunities relates to water in our changing coastal environment.

For the 2018-2019 Academic year, internships will begin on January 7, 2019, and end on May 10, 2019.  Students make a full-time commitment to work on a project during Winter Session 2019, and work part-time during Spring Semester 2019.

University of Delaware undergraduate students from any major may apply. The research project descriptions specify any coursework or prerequisites for the opportunity. In addition to research, DENIN Scholars are also required to attend workshops in career development and effective communication, as well as occasional field trips or social events. Scholars present the results of their work at a student symposium in May 2019.
