In 2019, Mosaics in Science interns worked in positions at some of the most beautiful places in North America. Learn more about these parks and the interns in the 2019 Mosaics in Science Diversity Internship Program report provides more details about our successes.

Mosaics Intern
A Mosaics Intern is an entry level natural resource science internship that focuses on career exploration and building fundamental natural resource science skills. Each Mosaics Intern will receive a weekly stipend of $400, park-provided housing or a housing allowance and paid travel expenses. Interns who successfully complete 640 hours of work in one or more eligible internships and are under the age of 26 will be eligible for the Public Land Corps Non-competitive Hiring Authority for 120 days following the completion of the internship. Successful completion of a  Mosaics in Science internship does not guarantee that the participant will be hired in to a federal position.

The Mosaics in Science Program is focused on persons that are under-represented in STEM fields. Students and recent graduates that are African American, Latino/Hispanic, Asian, Pacific Islander, and Native American are encouraged to apply for these internships. In order to be eligible for a MIS intern position, applicants must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent legal resident (“green-card-holder”) between the ages of 18 and 30 years old. Veterans may be up to 35 years old.

DHA Resource Assistant
The DHA Resource Assistant internship (DHA) is a unique internship opportunity within the Department of the Interior (DOI). In 2019, MIS offered 6 DHA positions. The objective is to build a pathway to employment in the DOI for exemplary students in higher education.  DHA-RA interns will apply natural resource science expertise to NPS management and build a network with federal employees throughout the internship. These rigorous internships require specialized expertise and are available to upper level undergraduate or graduate students. The program participant must be enrolled in school during the internship. The internships are designed to develop the participant’s technical and creative thinking abilities, leadership skills, and problem-solving capabilities.  DHA-RA interns will receive a weekly stipend of $480, park-provided housing or a housing allowance, and paid travel expenses.  DHA-RA interns who successfully complete the internship requirements become eligible to be non-competitively hired by the DOI for two years from the date of their degree. Successful completion of the internship does not guarantee that the participant will be hired in to a federal position.

The DHA internship is focused on full representation of participants from Historically Black, Hispanic, Asian Pacific Islander, and Native American schools or other schools with diverse student populations. In order to be eligible for a DHA internship, participants must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent legal resident (“green-card-holder”) and currently enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or PhD degree program at an accredited institution of higher education during the summer internship. Persons enrolled in a certificate program do not qualify for DHA positions.  Note: persons enrolled in a certificate program do not qualify for DHA positions
