The Geoscientists-in-the-Parks program works with our partners at the National Park Service and Geological Society of America to match college students and recent graduates age 18 - 35 years old with short-term, paid, internships with the National Park Service. Participants may assist with research, synthesis of scientific literature, geologic mapping, GIS analysis, site evaluations, resource inventorying and monitoring, impact mitigation, developing brochures and informative media presentations, and educating park staff and park visitors. GIP positions can last from 3 months to one-year. Learn more!
The application period for GIP positions is typically 6 weeks starting in December for Spring/Summer positions, and in May for Fall/Winter positions. Sometimes there are a small number of positions open outside of these windows.
