For graduate & undergraduate students

Interns learn about atmospheric instrumentation at Marshall MesaThe NCAR Earth System Science Internship (NESSI), hosted by the NCAR office of Education & Outreach, offers students interested in the Earth system sciences an opportunity to conduct research with NCAR scientists from across all labs on a wide range of topics including but not limited to atmospheric science, computational science, engineering, and solar & space physics. Our Program is designed to support and promote Earth system science through research, mentoring, and community building. 

NESSI seeks to involve students from groups that are historically underrepresented in the sciences, including Black or African-American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Hispanic or Latino, female, first-generation college students, veterans, LGBTQ+ students, and students with disabilities. 

The application process for the 2022 NESSI will open in January 2022. Find more details on the FAQ page.
