MarSci-LACE’s Intern Alliance is a program connecting underrepresented minority students participating in internships. The goal is to create a lasting peer-support network for students pursuing careers in marine science. The Alliance provides a safe space for students to openly discuss challenges unique to underrepresented minority students while providing tools to face these challenges. In addition, students are connected with positive role models working in the field of marine science. All students involved in any of the internship programs at Mote can participate in the Intern Alliance.
