Working Apprenticeship Through Estuarine Research for Students (WATERS) College Apprentice
Randall's Island Park Alliance Interns of the Working Apprenticeship Through Estuarine Research for Students (WATERS) program will select an estuarine topic to study. Participants will gain real-world science experience by creating a study design, collecting, and analyzing data, and sharing the results of their research. WATERS participants will work with guidance from RIPA researchers and Hudson River Estuary Program staff and network with professors and professionals in various fields of ecology to gain exposure to different STEM and STEM-adjacent career paths. Interns will also receive professional development support, including resume writing, cover letter development, and professional statements. Interns will report to the P.A.L Coordinator and Director of Environmental Programming.
