The HERS Institute provides an 8-week paid summer internship program on the campus of Haskell Indian Nations University. Interns develop research skills and work on research topics focused on the impacts of environmental and/or climate change on an Indigenous community or communities. Interns receive instruction and training on library systems, geographic information systems, research ethics and protocols, traditional ecological knowledge systems, and professional development. Interns spend week 7 at Oneida Nation in Wisconsin to learn about their natural resources programming. Interns create a graduate-level proposal, a personal statement, and a poster. Interns receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the program.

In addition to research training for graduate school, interns have the opportunity to communicate their research at national conferences, such as AISES and SACNAS.

Eligible candidates should be eligible for enrollment at a Tribal college or university, be in good standing, and be enrolled as an undergraduate or be an incoming student in the fall.
