GIP positions can last from 3 months to one-year.”

Benefits: Geoscientists-In-The-Parks interns have the opportunity to work in a National Park to gain valuable experience in the field. Interns are paid a stipend, travel allowance, with housing provided and are eligible for an AmeriCorps education award upon completion of program.

For more information view the program flyer.

History of the GIP Program From National Park Service website:

The National Park Service, Geologic Resources Division (GRD) created the Geoscientist-in-the-Parks (GIP) Program and began placing geoscientists in parks in 1996. The program responds to requests by park and central office staff for short-term assistance with geologic and other natural resource science projects. Participants in the GIP Program enable the National Park Service to complete important natural resource projects that would not be feasible without their help. GIP positions are advertised through a partnership with The Geological Society of America (GSA) and Environmental Stewards (ES).”
