Job Description:

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 interns with 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. View all positions and apply at www.mosaicsinscience.org.

The program is administered by the NPS Geologic Resources Division, in collaboration with other NPS Natural Resource Stewardship and Science offices, the NPS Youth Programs Division, and in partnership with Environment for the Americas and Greening Youth Foundation.

Mosaics In Science internships are twelve weeks, from mid-May to the beginning of August. A mandatory, all-expense paid career workshop will be held immediately following the park-based portion of the internship. Interns are provided a weekly stipend over twelve weeks, travel expenses are paid, and the costs of housing are covered. The weekly stipend for DHA interns is $480 and for non-DHA interns is $400.
