Summer Internship Opportunities

Internships provide valuable experience and allow you to see a wide range of applications for your geoscience background. 
This page is a work in progress -- more info coming.

Every summer students head out to participate in environmental, conservation, energy finance, energy exploration, and other internships with organizations, companies, and the government. These experiences make you aware of the real-life applications of the geosciences as well as give you contacts that will help with your next steps.

GSA has a helpful page for internships tips and more, under Career Resources, here.   Check in with Sarah to see if an alum works at any of the places that have internships you are interested in. Contact Sarah Wilson at wilsons@wlu.edu to view the Summer Research and Internships 2021 presentation.
