Some Resources

I threw together this list of Earth Science REUs and internships for a resource roundtable this afternoon, and thought it might be a good thing post here.

National Parks Service Mosaics in Science

The Mosaics in Science Internship Program provides you that are under-represented in natural resource science career fields with on-the-ground, science-based, work experience with the National Parks Service. Established in 2013, this multidisciplinary program provides interns with opportunities to work on inventorying and monitoring, research, GIS and other technologies, and interpretation and educational projects. After the internships, a career workshop is held in Washington DC where the interns present the results of their work, are exposed to different science careers, and develop skills to apply for a federal job.

The program is administered by the NPS Geological Resources Division, in collaboration with other NPS Natural Resource Stewardship and Science offices, the NPS Youth Programs Division, and in partnership with Environment for the Americas and Greening Youth Foundation.

CWU Hazards and Risks of Climate Change in the Pacific Northwest REU

        How is our climate changing in the Pacific Northwest? How is that climate change going to to affect you and your community? Are we prepared to adapt to these changes in our climate?

        Come join us at Central Washington University for an interdisciplinary research experience where we will address these questions. Our program is open to undergraduates who are currently enrolled at two-year and four-year colleges in the Pacific Northwest, particularly students in their first and second years of college.

Geological Society of American GeoCorps America

        GeoCorps America is a program of the Geological Society of America, operated in partnership with government agencies and other organizations committed to science and stewardship. Current partners include the Bureau of Land Management and the US Forest Service.

        This program offers paid short-term geoscience assignments in some of the most beautiful natural areas in the world.

NSF Earth Science REUs

        You can see all the available NSF Earth Science REUs by searching on the NSF website:

Geological Society of American On to the Future (OTF) Program

        The OTF Program is a grassroots initiative of the Geological Society of America that addresses the organization’s overall strategic commitment to building a diverse geoscience community by engaging groups traditionally underrepresented in the geosciences. The OTF Program awards partial travel grants to undergraduate and graduate students, and recent graduates studying in the geosciences, to attend their first GSA Annual Meeting.
