Expanding RESESS to Engage Students from Groups Underrepresented in Geosciences

Category: Announcement

Tags: RESESS Satellite

New for summer 2022 is the diversification of the Research Experiences in Solid Earth Science for Students (RESESS) internship program, which will now include a Satellite program in addition to the traditional Boulder program. For 2022, UNAVCO is partnering with faculty from the University of Washington Department of Earth and Space Sciences. We retain the RESESS Boulder program in collaboration with the University of Colorado. 

RESESS Satellite is a summer research experience in a hybrid model, designed to accommodate students on both a quarter and semester academic year. Interns will work at the University of Washington for the first half of the summer and then return to their home location to finish their research. UNAVCO will provide professional development throughout the summer jointly to the Boulder and Satellite cohorts.

RESESS summer internship programs are dedicated to increasing the diversity of students entering the geosciences.  Since 2005, RESESS has provided students from groups underrepresented in science with professional development opportunities, graduate school application support, and the opportunity to conduct geoscience research with world-class faculty at the University of Colorado-Boulder and across the US.
