NEON is offering summer internship programs for undergraduate students from populations that are underrepresented in science, engineering, and computer science. The internship programs are designed to provide real-world work experience in ecology, computing, and engineering. Interns work at NEON HQ in Boulder, CO, from late May to early August. The programs provide travel to and from Boulder, CO, housing, and a competitive salary.

During the summer, students work closely with a science or engineering mentor on their internship project. Internship opportunities in engineering, computing, aquatic ecology, terrestrial ecology and airborne operations are available. In addition to the mentors, interns have the support of a strong peer group and the NEON staff.

Eligibility: Applicants should be legally able to work in the U.S. Accepted students are generally rising juniors or rising seniors. Applicants should have at least one semester remaining after this coming summer. A GPA of 3.0 is generally desirable. Descriptions of specific internship requirements are posted on the NEON website on the How To Apply page.

NOTE: for students on quarter system, start & end dates may be negotiated.
