The RESESS Internship Program is seeking applications from students from minority populations that are poorly represented in the geosciences (see our home page for our mission).
Students have the opportunity to do research of their own in geology, structure, geophysics, sedimentology, hydrology, petroleum geology, geologic hazards, or other topics. We try to match projects to student interests.
Students also participate in a writing course with the help of a mentor, field trips, workshops, and activities with their peers. Students describe this opportunity as opening doors for them. At RESESS, we really take care of our interns.
