Description:
Scientists in Parks provides immersive, paid work experiences in natural resource fields so the next generation of park stewards—especially those underrepresented in science—have a unique opportunity to work on important real-world projects while building professional experience and a life-long connection to America’s national parks.

Program Scope:

Project areas will encompass the biological, physical, and social sciences and will address a spectrum of topics—including air quality, climate change, geology, hydrology, night skies, paleontology, communication, and outreach. The program also invites science-related projects that intersect with the human dimensions of managing natural resources.

SIP welcomes aspiring professionals to apply and we invite the full participation of individuals currently being underserved in STEM career fields.
