A Conservation Internship Program

The Geoscientists-in-the-Parks (GIP) program works with partners to match college students and recent graduates age 18 - 30 years old, or military veterans up to age 35, 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.
