Business proposals are due. Host businesses work with the OASE program coordinator to answer any questions they may have to submit their project proposal.


Intern recruitment and site visit.  OASE program coordinator visits business sites to review program requirements and refine their project scope. Host businesses are selected. Oregon Sea Grant receives and vets student intern applications. Businesses interview top candidates for their position.


Preparation for intern. OASE will coordinate a meeting between businesses, technical advisors/mentor, and interns to finalize project scope. OASE hosts an event to showcase past projects and introduce the new cohort.
