National Park Service (NPS) Scientists in Parks (SIP) Interns - Winter 2024–2025

Discover meaningful, career-building experiences that cultivate your potential and connection with America’s national parks.

An Immersive Experience

Scientists in Parks provides immersive, paid work experiences in natural resource fields so the next generation of park stewards—especially those underrepresented in science—have a unique opportunity to work on important real-world projects while building professional experience and a life-long connection to America’s national parks.

Program Scope

Project areas will encompass the physical, biological, and social sciences and will address a spectrum of topics—including air quality, climate change, geology, hydrology, night skies, paleontology, communication, and outreach. The program also invites science-related positions that intersect with the human dimensions of managing natural resources.


SIP welcomes aspiring professionals to apply and we invite the full participation of individuals currently being underserved in STEM career fields. This includes, but is not limited to, individuals from racially and/or ethnically diverse communities, individuals with disabilities, individuals from LGBTIQ+ communities, and individuals who experience intersectionality with one or more of these identities.
