  • Internship Program 

    The 2018 program once again hopes to host several college students for a ten-week paid internship. Students are assigned specific river research projects, conduct field experimentation, gain invaluable experience using data/specimen collection and cataloging protocols, and learn out to analyze, synthesize, and interpret data and translate these into research reports. Finally, they experience the challenge and exhilaration of presenting their findings in a symposium specifically designed for student interns.

    Now in its sixteenth year, the 2018 program is ready to select the new round of research projects. NGRREC is looking for research projects in ecology, management, education, policy, or human dimensions related to great rivers and their watersheds. The number of projects selected for the 2018 cycle will be determined based on available funding. Project advisors will have a project budget of up to $1,500 for project supplies, travel (fieldwork and Symposium attendance), and contractual services. The program begins with students participating in a week-long Short Course and orientation at NGRREC's Field Station May 21-25, followed by a nine-week internship. During the internship period, students will work directly with project mentors from host organizations selected by proposals to this solicitation. The program concludes with a Symposium on July 30 and 31, 2018 during which each student will present their summer work to their fellow interns and project advisors.

    The project proposal deadline is Nov. 20, 2017 (5:00 pm CST).
