The primary goal of the UNOLS Cruise Opportunity Program is to provide graduate students currently completing a degree in a field of oceanographic research with the opportunity to participate in a research cruise. The participant will be a member of the scientific party and be involved in data collection and all other activities at sea.
At-Sea Technical Internship Program. Interns work as marine technicians aboard sea-going research vessels that are part of UNOLS, the United States Coast Guard, and the Ocean Exploration Trust.
The STEMSEAS project is an NSF-funded initiative aimed at addressing these issues, coordinated by the U.S. Science Support Program. STEMSEAS takes advantage of unused berthing capacity available during transits between expeditions on the federally funded research vessel network, the University National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS). These short (~5-12 day) transits offer a mobile classroom setting where undergraduate non-STEM, undecided-STEM, and geoscience majors can be exposed to geoscience professional practice and career exploration.
