National Park Service Mosaics in Science Internship Program – Deadline: February 3, 2015
The Mosaics in Science program developed by the U.S. National Park Service (NPS), in partnership with the Geological Society of America (GSA), with the aim of increasing the diversity among those who seek STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) careers within the National Park Service.
The Mosaics in Science program offers paid, short-term STEM positions in some of the most beautiful natural areas in the world—National Park Service sites throughout the United States of America. Mosaics in Science is a relatively new, diversity-oriented program that began in the summer of 2013, with 12 different exciting positions from Washington, DC, to Washington state. For the the Summer of 2015, 26 Mosaics in Science positions will be offered.
Selected participants will spend 11 weeks working on a STEM project at a NPS site. After completing their projects, participants travel to Washington, DC, to participate in a career workshop that provides opportunities to present their work and meet with various members of NPS staff and management.
Mosaics in Science is a partnership between the National Park Service (NPS) Geological Resources Division, the National Park Service (NPS) Youth Programs Office and the Geological Society of America. Generous funding has been provided by the National Park Foundation.
