A Mosaics in Science Internship is a rich opportunity to work side-by-side with scientists and other professionals. Interns are part of bat research, bird surveys, seed collection projects, geological surveys, archaeological exploration, and much more. Interns receive additional training through weekly webinars and help to share the mission of the program through a blog. The goals of Mosaics in Science are to provide science-based internships for racially and ethnically undergraduate and graduate students, and recent graduates to increase relevancy, diversity and inclusion in the National Park Service (NPS).
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.
Interns are provided a weekly stipend over twelve weeks, travel expenses are paid, and the costs of housing are covered. The weekly stipend ranges from $400-$480. Learn more!
