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.
