PICRC & Palau Aquarium Internship Program

**No Current Internship Openings as of JULY 2016 Until Further Notice**

The Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC) envisions people empowered with science and knowledge for effective marine conservation and management. PICRC and Palau Aquarium are proud to offer a variety of internships which will educate and inspire the next generation of advocates and caretakers. Internships are flexible, but typically our interns work 30+ hour weeks in order to have the time to work in depth on their projects. All interns commit to a regular schedule, to be determined based on their availability and our needs, before they begin the program.

To be considered for the program, students should submit the following:

Internship application
Resume or Curriculum vitae
Unofficial transcript
One letter of reference from a professor or professional in your field
International students: Submit a brief statement explaining your interest in working in Palau, your intended area of focus, and the skills you hope to gain during your internship.
Local applicants: Submit a brief statement explaining your views on conservation work, your career goals, and the skills you hope to gain during your internship.

Completing an internship for school credit? We require potential interns obtain an instructor to oversee their internship and have all school paperwork ready before applying for our internship program.

All internships are unpaid. Local apartments and housing are available for rent. We can help you make arrangements and get settled in.
