CCEF’s Internship Programme provides opportunities for students to gain insight into the marine conservation work of CCEF. Every year a limited number of places for internships are available.

CCEF does not pay for internships. The costs associated with the latter must be borne by the nominating institution, related institution or government which may provide the required financial assistance to its students, or by the student who will have to obtain financing for subsistence to make his or her own arrangements for travel, accommodation, etc.
Applicants interested in an internship should send a letter application to firstname.lastname@example.org, together with a copy of resume/CV.
