AGI Policy & Critical Issues Internships and Fellowships

AGI’s Geoscience Policy and Critical Issues Programs offer paid internships and fellowships for geoscience students and recent graduates interested in promoting the use of geoscience in policymaking.
 
Interns gain a first-hand understanding of science policy at the federal and/or state and local level. They also hone their writing, research, and web publishing skills as they develop content for the Policy & Critical Issues website and for outreach efforts to federal, state and local policy makers.
 
The programs offer two fellowships: the William L. Fisher Congressional Geoscience Fellow spends a year working in Washington, D.C., as a staff member in the office of a member of Congress or on a congressional committee, and the AGI/Schlumberger Fellow in Geoscience Communication spends 6-12 months working with the Critical Issues Program to help connect state and local decision makers with high-quality geoscience information.

EARTH Science Writing Externship

EARTH’s externship is an opportunity for select students and inexperienced writers to learn about the process of writing and editing a news story about recent scientific research, and to get professionally edited and published clips. Most of our externs have backgrounds studying science — particularly geoscience-related fields relevant to EARTH's typical content — and are interested in potentially pursuing science writing as a part- or full-time career option. But EARTH welcomes applicants of all backgrounds who are interested in sharing what's new in earth science with a broad audience. We typically work with three or four externs at any given time, but we regularly rotate in new writers as positions come open.

If you are selected as an EARTH extern, the position is essentially an as-you're-available writing opportunity. In any given week or month when you have time to write, you'll email us and say, "Hey, I have time to write." Then, either we can assign you a story or you can pitch stories to us — it's up to you. If you've got a great idea for a story and would like practice pitching your idea to an editor, you're encouraged to do so. On the other hand, if you'd prefer that we provide you with an assignment — as is the case with many first-time externs, for example — that's fine too.

Our extern-written stories typically cover a recent, peer-reviewed scientific study or report, and include quotes about the study from multiple expert sources — obtained via first-person interviews — just as a professional news story would. Before your first assignment, we'll provide guidance about the general style, tone and structure of the news stories we publish in EARTH to help get you started. And then we'll work with you through the writing and editorial process. You're encouraged to ask questions, and you're welcome write as frequently or infrequently as works for you and the magazine's editorial staff.

The externship is a remote position; you can work from any location and at your leisure. Once a story is assigned, you’ll generally have one to two weeks to research, report and write it before turning it in. (We do ask that you stick closely to deadlines, so please keep that in mind when determining your availability to write.) Once edited and finalized, extern-written stories are posted on EARTH's website as soon as possible. Select extern-written pieces may also appear in a print issue of the magazine. Publication, online and/or in print, is subject to the discretion of the editorial staff and is not guaranteed. The externship is unpaid.

If you're interested in the experience, email a cover letter discussing your interest in the geosciences and why you'd make a great extern at EARTH, your resume or CV, and at least one writing sample to earth@earthmagazine.org to apply.
