Description:
GeoCorps America is a program of the Geological Society of America, operated in partnership with government agencies and other organizations committed to science and stewardship. Current partners include the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service.

The program offers paid short-term geoscience positions in some of the most beautiful natural areas in the world. GeoCorps project areas include geology, hydrology, paleontology, mapping and GIS, minerals, soils, glaciology, geo-hazards, karst, education, interpretation, and more.

During the summer, the Geological Society of America (GSA) partners with Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to support the Direct Hire Authority for Resource Assistants Internship (DHA-RAI) Program. The BLM DHA-RAI Program offers rigorous geoscience opportunities through GeoCorps America. Program participants bring new and diverse viewpoints to the BLM, while working on rigorous projects designed for attracting, recruiting, and filling mission-critical and hard-to-fill occupations at the agency.

The objective of the DHA-RAI Program is to build a pathway towards employment with federal agencies in the Department of the Interior (DOI) for highly-motivated students in higher education. Current students and recent graduates who successfully complete this summer program will be eligible to be non-competitively hired into federal positions for two years starting from the completion date of their qualifying degree program.
