Mosaics in Science Internship:

Internship Description:

A Mosaics in Science Internship (MIS) 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,
archeological explorations, and much more. Interns receive additional
training through weekly webinars and help to share the mission of the
program through this Blog. During a post-internship career workshop,
participants have a first opportunity to meet other interns face-to-face
and share their summer's work during an oral or poster presentation. Guest
speakers provide additional information about science careers and federal
jobs.  The goals of MIS 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). We also strive to promote the mission of the NPS and to
support high priority natural resource management and visitor education and
interpretation projects in some of America's most beautiful places.
