Research Experiences in Solid Earth Science for Students (RESESS)


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
RESESS is an undergraduate internship and support program in the Earth sciences based at UNAVCO in Boulder, Colorado, that is dedicated to increasing diversity in the geosciences.

The goal of the RESESS internship program is to increase the number of students from groups that are underrepresented in the geosciences relative to their proportions in the general population.

RESESS encourages applications from individuals who are members of a group that is historically underrepresented in the Earth sciences, including students with disabilities, non-traditional students, and students who are Black or African American, American Indian or Native Pacific Islanders, Hispanic or Latinos, and others.

We introduce students to scientific research, prepare students for graduate school, and provide support and encouragement as students build skills and confidence. Students experience an authentic research experience and are encouraged to consider graduate school with an eye to a career in science, whether that is in research, teaching, or industry. Students can participate for up to three years, depending on when they enter the program.
