*While we have created a list of minimum qualifications for the program, there is no single path to geophysics. Thus, the selection committee is interested in your training in physics, math, geoscience and computer skills and takes holistic approach to the selection process.
While it is extremely difficult to predict what the status of the pandemic will be by summer, we will run some version of our program. What that program will look like will, of course, vary depending on the situation nationally. Our aim is to operate the program normally and in person if at all possible. However, if that is not possible we have a outlined a spectrum of possibilities from in person out to a 100% virtual model. The exact plan won't be determined until sometime closer to March 2021 and we will do our best to keep applicants updated.
Decisions for all students will be made by approximately the end of March annually. To help ensure a strong match between interns and hosts, when possible, accepted interns will be able to select a project that most interests them. The matching of interns and projects will take place between March 15 and March 30th, annually. Specific end dates for individual projects, travel and financial arrangements will be negotiated between the host and the accepted interns.
