Fellowship Program

Are you looking for an expanded internship? The Alaska SeaLife Center (ASLC) is sponsoring a Fall/Winter Fellowship program for college students or graduates who are interested in gaining a one of a kind experience in a world-class marine facility. ASLC summer Fellowships offer a well-rounded experience in a variety of areas within the Center. Depending on the type of Fellowship, duties may include assisting aquarium, avian or marine mammal staff with animal husbandry tasks; helping with marine-related research projects or as support in our education department.

Fellows will spend 30 hours per week in a designated Fellowship area to learn and gain practical hands on experience.  The remaining 10 hours will be spent assisting in front of house operations either at the ticketing counter or with our Interpretation Department.  Fellows will not be permitted to participate in ASLC activities on vessels unless specified in the fellowship.

If you have questions or would like more information on becoming a Fall or Winter Fellow at the Alaska SeaLife Center please email the volunteer coordinator.
