Spend a summer exploring the marine world and the dive industry with the Boston Sea Rovers, one of the country's oldest and most prestigious dive clubs. The Frank Scalli Summer Internship is the perfect opportunity for those looking to pursue a career in marine Science.
Immediately following high school graduation or the freshman year of college, the Scalli scholar will intern with members and associates of the Boston Sea Rovers located throughout the United States and beyond to experience a wide variety of jobs and career choices. Based in part on the personal interests of the scholar, the internship will provide advanced dive training courses and ample opportunities to dive and train with a variety of dive professionals in a broad cross section of diving environments.
Opportunities will include hands-on work with professional underwater photographers and filmmakers, educational specialists, marine engineers and scientists, equipment manufacturers, and dive shop owners.
In addition to the unique time spent with some of our most distinguished members, the Scalli Intern will have the use of a full set of dive equipment (provided by the Sea Rover Clinic corporate sponsors) throughout the summer and will receive the necessary financial support support to cover travel and living expenses.
