Greetings from the South Central Climate Science Center!

We are pleased to announce that we will be offering a summer
undergraduate internship opportunity in 2015 for students of
underrepresented minorities interested in science, technology,
engineering and mathematics fields (for example, agricultural science,
economics, environmental engineering). Applicants must come from
Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, or Texas. Interns
will be involved in hands-on activities related to climate research
that will allow them to see the direct impacts of climate variability
and change on forest ecosystems in Oklahoma, coastal areas in
Louisiana, and the Texas Hill Country. Internship participants will
travel across the South Central United States to visit university
campuses and field locations and interact with faculty conducting
cutting edge research.

The internship will take place from Sunday, May 31, 2015 to Saturday,
June 20, 2015. Interns will spend one week with the University of
Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University, one week with Louisiana State
University, and one week with Texas Tech University. All meals,
lodging and travel will be provided during the three-week period. In
addition, interns will receive a $200/week stipend for the duration of
the program. The program will not cover local travel between the
participant's home to their closest airport, personal equipment
(clothing, cameras, etc.), or other personal expenses.

A sample of the 2014 itinerary is available here:

The South Central Climate Science Center is committed to encouraging
diversity in the sciences. Please encourage your scientifically minded
students to apply for this unique opportunity to experience climate
research hands-on.

Established in 2012 by the Department of Interior, the South Central
Climate Science Center provides decision makers with the science,
tools, and information they need to address the impacts of climate
variability and change on their areas of responsibility. The Center
supports big thinking, including multi-institutional and
stakeholder-driven approaches to climate variability, change, impacts,
mitigation, and adaptation research.
