The deadline for submissions is October 30.
Capstone experience: In order to be eligible for the fellowship program, students need to have successfully completed a capstone experience in the geosciences, which could include field camp, a senior research project or thesis, or similar experience that fosters synthesis and independent thinking.

The most successful interns are curious, flexible, have good foundational training, and an ability to work with a degree of independence appropriate for an advanced undergraduate.
