Apply Now for a SCEC Summer Internship!

The Statewide California Earthquake Center (SCEC) is excited to announce that applications are now open for Summer 2024 undergraduate internships! Since 1994, SCEC Internships have supported  impactful research experiences of more than 700 undergraduate students who worked  with SCEC scientists on a broad range of earthquake science projects, including paleoseismic field investigations, 3D fault mapping, ground motion simulations and other high-performance computing applications, hazard analysis, and educational products.

SCEC Internships are fully funded, including travel and lodging expenses. Undergraduate students interested in earthquake science have the opportunity to apply for two internship programs:

The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) internship pairs students one-on-one with scientists for specialized research at the scientist’s institution or field site.

The Supported Opportunities for Undergraduates and Researchers to Collaborate on Earthquakes (SOURCES) is a remotely-mentored research experience that allows participants the opportunity to gain experience regardless of geographic location or availability of local researchers. 

To apply visit scec.org/internships/apply. Applications received by February 19 will be considered in the first round of internship offers. Applications will be accepted until all positions are filled. (Applications received after February 19 will be reviewed as space allows.)
