This summer Downeast Institute (DEI) is hosting a record number of interns. Five come to us from the University of Maine at Machias, two from the University of Maine, one from the University of Southern Maine, and one from Cedar Crest College (PA).
Our interns are working in a variety of roles at DEI, including in our Shellfish Production & Research Hatchery, our Ocean Acidification Labratory, and with our marine research team. The Friends of Crumple Island Scholarship Fund helps support these internship experiences for young scholars. Meet the 2022 interns in the 2022 Friends of Crumple Island Newsletter.
