We draw our suggested research topics from actual obstacles existing seasteading teams are currently trying to overcome in their quest to stimulate a start-up sector for governance. All topics are generalizable to a number of different business models, and cover many fields, meaning there are opportunities for students across a variety of majors, including but not limited to the following:

    • Architecture/Design
    • Business
    • Development Studies
    • Earth Science
    • Economics
    • Engineering (industrial, electrical, mechanical)
    • Geography
    • International Relations
    • Law
    • Oceanography
    • Political Science


What the Institute Offers Students

We are committed to making the administrative process as easy as possible for all students wishing to explore one of dozens of real world challenges facing early seasteading businesses. We stand ready to tap into our network of supporters, many of whom have substantial academic or business experience, to recruit mentors and advisors for the projects. Additionally, our knowledgeable staff will guide the direction of various projects to maximize the impact on the seasteading movement.


While the ability to receive independent study credit will vary by academic institution, most universities allow significant leeway for students who put together structured and thoughtful proposals. We have streamlined the process for approving internships on our end, and approving any requirements on the schools end.


We will help students craft initial proposals to the mutual satisfaction of the Institute and the school or department in question, and will continue to lend support throughout the research process. Our ultimate goal is to publish all quality projects, adding to the body of knowledge on which entrepreneurs will draw when the time to launch new seasteading ventures is ripe.
