STARTING YOUR OWN INTERNSHIP with SOARS
The mission of SOARS is to increase participation in the atmospheric and related sciences. While our proteges and alumni are emerging as future leaders in our field, the number of students we can reach is limited by the number of protégés our mentors can take on! But we have a model that works, and we are very happy to share our experiences if you or your organization would like to start your own program. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information.
RESESS (at Unavco): Research Experiences in Solid Earth Sciences for Students at Unavco, in Boulder, Colorado, is a summer research internship program aimed at increasing the diversity of students in the geosciences. RESESS was founded with support from SOARS and continues to share housing, leadership training and social events with our program.
The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON), also in Boulder Colorado, started their research internship program in 2012. The program has been mentored by SOARS and interns will also share housing, leadership training and social events with SOARS and RESESS.
