The Duke University Marine Laboratory, with funding from the Office of Naval Research, conducts an 8-10 week summer internship program for rising seniors from three high schools East Carteret High School, West Carteret High School and the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics. The purpose of the program is to expose students to active, on-going research programs so that they may be able to understand what is involved in a career in marine science research. Groups of interns are preselected by a committee of science teachers at each school and the applications are sent to the Duke University Marine Laboratory DUML. At DUML, applications are reviewed and rated by a panel of three scientists one from NOAA-NMFS, one from the University of North Carolina Institute of Marine Sciences, and one from DUML. Two interns are selected from each of the three schools. Interns are matched with research faculty at DUML who then contact the interns in the spring to begin the process of developing a research topic. The exposure to such an active research environment is hoped to encourage students at an early age to consider careers in science, particularly marine science.
