Mosaics in Science Internship Program
Mosaics in Science (MIS) is supported through a public-private partnership between the National Park Service's Natural Resource Stewardship and Science Directorate and Youth Programs Division in partnership with Environment for the Americas.
The Mosaics in Science Internship Program provides youth that are under-represented in natural resource science career fields with on-the-ground, science-based, work experience with the National Park Service. Established in 2013, this multidisciplinary program provides opportunities to work on inventorying and monitoring, research, GIS and other technologies, and interpretation and education 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 Natural Resource Stewardship and Science Directorate through the Scientists in Parks Program and the NPS Youth Programs Division in partnership with Environment for the Americas.
