The Pacific Internship Programs for Exploring Science is now accepting applications for its summer 2013 program, which runs May 28–August 9. The application deadline is Thursday, February 28.

Undergraduate students of Native Hawaiian ancestry, other kamaʻaina, underrepresented minorities and first-generation college students are encouraged to apply for opportunities in paid summer environmental internships statewide.

PIPES is a university level project-based internship program housed within the Pacific Aquaculture and Coastal Resources Center at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo. Participants will work side-by-side with UH Hilo and other agency researchers, resource managers and environmental educators on exciting and mentored experiential projects.

PIPES is committed to increasing the recruitment and retention of local students, especially those of Native Hawaiian ancestry, into fields of study, and ultimately careers, related to the natural resources of Hawaiʻi and the Pacific region.

Applications and instructions are available on the PIPES website. For more information, contact Ulu Ching or Noelani Puniwai at (808) 933-0705.
