Are you a young marine science professional looking for a way to boost your resume while receiving meaningful, hands-on experience? Well, you’re in luck!
Georgia Aquarium and Aggressor Adventures have joined fins for an Ocean Science Leadership Program offering young marine professionals the opportunity of a lifetime by providing an experiential learning trip for individuals working towards a career in the industry.
One deserving young professional will have the opportunity to experience a fully comped Aggressor Adventures liveaboard scuba diving trip in 2022. While on board, the young professional will work closely with a Georgia Aquarium expert for on-site education sessions and will work with the Aggressor team to earn an advanced dive certification.
To be considered for the leadership program, you must currently live in the United States and have a degree in ecology, biology, zoology, environmental management, conservation or related discipline from a four-year college or university, as well as having a current open water dive certification. Stand-out candidates will currently be enrolled in or will have recently completed an internship program at an aquarium, dive center, zoo, or wildlife conservation center (not a disqualifier). Applicants are required to submit an 800-word essay from a list of predetermined marine science-related topics.
If you are interested in applying, please complete the application below by February 28 at 5 pm Eastern. The winning young professional will be announced March 21.
