About Us

The Mosaics in Science (MIS) Diversity Internship Program provides college students and recent graduates 18-35 years old that are under-represented in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) career fields with on-the-ground, natural resource science-based, work experience in the National Park System. Each internship is comprised of working twelve or twenty weeks in a park followed by a four day career workshop held in Washington, D.C. This program is run in partnership with Environment for the Americas.
