Scientists in Parks (SIP)
The Scientists in Parks program is a collaboration between Stewards Individual Placements, the National Park Service, Ecological Society of America and the Geological Society of America. We support young adults in short-term, paid internships stationed at National Park Service sites. Participants may assist with research, synthesis of scientific literature, geologic mapping, GIS analysis, resource inventorying and monitoring, impact mitigation, and more. SIP positions can last from 3 months to one-year.
Application period for SIP positions are:
- Summer positions: applications open early December are typically open for about 6 weeks. Positions start between the month of May - September.
- Winter positions: applications open in May. Positions start between the months of October-April.
Lots of people work to make the Scientists in Parks program possible. While Stewards staff supports the primary aspects of the program, Geological Society of America recruits. Their contact information is:
