2020 Great Lakes Summer Fellows Program

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 2020 Great Lakes Summer  Fellows Program, in partnership with NOAA GLERL. This program aims to provide promising undergraduate students (juniors or seniors) or graduate students with the opportunity to conduct research on important Great Lakes topics.

While this is a national open competition, we encourage applications from students affiliated with our Regional Consortium. Please share this announcement with your students and post the attached flyers where appropriate. We seek to use these fellowships to increase diversity in STEM disciplines and strongly encourage applications from students who identify with groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in government and academic workforces.

The deadline for applications is February 23, 2020. Visit https://ciglr.seas. umich.edu/opportunities/ student-fellowships/ for more information, including how to apply.

Thank you for your assistance.

2020 Great Lakes Summer Fellows  Program
The Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) announces the 2020 Great Lakes Summer Fellows Program, in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (GLERL). The Great Lakes Summer Fellows Program exposes students to a broad range of disciplines and provides an exciting opportunity for students to conduct research in the Great Lakes region under the mentorship of a CIGLR or GLERL scientist. We seek to use these fellowships to increase diversity in STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and math) and strongly encourage applications from students who identify with groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in government and academic workforces.

  • We are offering nine (9) full-time, twelve-week positions located at the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL), 4840 South State Road, Ann Arbor, MI 48108, about 4 miles south of the University of Michigan central campus.
  • Fellowships will begin on May 18 and end on August 7.
  • Each student will receive a $10,000 stipend, paid in four installments of $2,500. The first payment will be made one month in advance of the start date to help with securing housing and other incidentals for relocation to Ann Arbor. Stipend pay dates will be: 4/13/20, 5/11/20, 6/8/20, and 8/10/20.
  • Each student will receive financial support for travel to and from Ann Arbor.
  • A vehicle will be provided for local travel to/from the work site for students in need of transportation while in Ann Arbor.


  • The program is limited to currently-enrolled undergraduate (juniors and seniors as of Fall 2020) and graduate students (Master’s and Ph.D.). We will also consider post-baccalaureate or post-masters students who have graduated within the past 12 months of the fellowship (i.e., May 2019 or after), if the position fits directly within a student’s career or academic goals.
  • You must be either a U.S. citizen or a foreign national who is residing in the U.S. on a current Student Visa.
  • Immediate relatives of any CIGLR or NOAA GLERL employees are not eligible to participate in this program, consistent with NOAA guidelines.

Ocean Exploration Trust Posts/Internships


Inspired by the thousands of letters he received from students seeking an opportunity to join an expedition following his discovery of Titanic’s final resting place, Dr. Robert Ballard’s vision for the mission of the Ocean Exploration Trust was that it would increasingly connect exploratory expeditions beyond the scientific community and into classrooms and living rooms. His goal was, and continues to be, to encourage the next generation of explorers to follow educational pathways into the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) workforce.

Role modeling has been the keystone of OET’s educational and outreach program since its inception. Each year, members of the Corps of Exploration — which includes crew members, to students and lead scientists that sail aboard E/V Nautilus — come from academia, industry, schools, federal agencies, military, and nonprofits. As we highlight each member of the Corps aboard the vessel to global audiences, we aim to show that the breadth of vocations and pathways possible within STEM-related disciplines is vast. We also strive to ensure that the demographics of the Corps — specifically, representation of women and historically underrepresented minorities in STEM — reflects the diversity of the United States, allowing a greater number of children to recognize opportunities for themselves in these career pathways.

While emphasizing role modeling and mentoring, OET has developed a suite of programs over the last decade to engage educators and students of all ages through a multifaceted approach including: (1) outreach to inspire the online-public through 24/7 connectivity to explorers at sea; (2) immersive, hands-on opportunities for students and educators to participate in E/V Nautilus expeditions shoulder-to-shoulder with professionals in the field (3) professional development opportunities for educators on shore; and (4) ocean exploration-themed STEM curricular materials.

OET’s at-sea education programs for the 2020 Nautilus expedition season are open to individuals who hold a United States or Canadian passport or are eligible to obtain one upon program selection.  Participants must plan to live in the United States or Canada for the duration of the expedition season (June – December 2020).

Underwater Archaeology Fieldwork Report Awards

NEW: Anna Marguerite McCann Award for Fieldwork Reports

The AIA is pleased to announce a new award, to be presented each year at the Annual Meeting of the Institute, which will recognize a report on fieldwork (e.g. excavation and/or survey) deemed most worthy of recognition by the award committee. The award is in keeping with the Code of Ethics of the AIA, which emphasizes the need for archaeologists to publish the results of their field research.

This new award is named for the late Dr. Anna Marguerite McCann, an internationally renowned scholar and author in the fields of ancient Greek and Roman sculpture. The first female American underwater archaeologist, Dr. McCann was a pioneer in underwater archaeology, specializing in the use of robotic technology to study ancient Roman harbors. Her many accomplishments in the field have previously been recognized by the AIA, most notably when she was awarded the James R. Wiseman Book Award in 1989 and later when she was presented with the AIA’s highest honor, the Gold Medal Award for Archaeological Achievement in 1998.

The deadline for letters of nomination and publications to be received by Institute Headquarters is March 15, 2020. Please stay tuned for further details, including eligibility requirements and application procedures.
