The US Geological Survey is seeking to create a pathway whereby students with excellent training in biological field methods can be nominated and apply for summer internships at USGS. Selected applicants will be offered internships at available field, laboratory, or office related scientific positions throughout the country for up to 5 months. USGS places interns wherever the project scientists need them. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, some internships may be conducted remotely.
The USGS Cooperative Summer Fellowship Program is seeking undergraduate students who have strong preparation in skills valuable to USGS. We are particularly interested in providing opportunities for students for whom an internship is a unique opportunity, and could help propel them toward a professional path. ESA and USGS are committed to diversity and inclusion. We especially encourage field course and program directors to nominate students from underrepresented communities in ecology.
