ADAC Summer Internship
The ADAC educational programs, including the summer Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) program, are designed to contribute to the growth of a highly skilled workforce for Homeland Security agencies, and through ADAC-related research, to contribute to the capabilities of US Coast Guard operators to provide disaster relief, search and rescue, and humanitarian aid in the Arctic.
The MSI Internship program seeks qualified undergraduate students to participate as research interns in ADAC-sponsored projects. The 10-week program provides a stipend and travel expenses to the institution of placement.
ADAC is hosted by the University of Alaska, with work conducted at UA campuses in Anchorage and Fairbanks . . . and across a community of academic centers.
ADAC’s Mission is to develop and transition technology solutions, innovative products, and educational programs; and to improve situational awareness and crisis response capabilities related to emerging maritime challenges posed by the dynamic Arctic environment.
