If you or someone you know would be interested in early consideration for a USGS 2021 Student Intern position, please read the information, below.
What is the GICSI/USGS Cooperative Summer Field Training Program?
The GISCI/USGS collaboration seeks to bring students trained in GIS to USGS for internship opportunities. It is additive to our longstanding NAGT program. Now in its fifth decade, the National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT)/U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Cooperative Summer Field Training Program is the longest continuously running internship program in the earth sciences. Over the past fifty-one years, more than 2,400 students have participated in this program with an impressive number of these individuals becoming full-time employees of the USGS.
The applications for the 2021 USGS GIS Summer Intern Program are now open.
The fact that you have begun to work toward a future GISP Certification can now be used for early consideration toward applying for a USGS Internship, possibly leading to a USGS invitation to apply.
This will be an opt-in program, only, meaning that you are required to give GISCI permission to forward your name to the USGS for further consideration.
This is not a guarantee of an invitation to apply to the program, participation in this program will not obligate you to apply for any position, and your presence or absence now will not affect your later ability to apply for any 2020 Intern positions when announced!
To be qualified for this early consideration, a student must:
To be considered for this program, you must 'opt-in':
Please send an email to me at email@example.com and add to the Subject Line - "Your Name - USGS GIS Summer Intern Program 2021".
Please provide your complete contact info, graduation date, and college/university.
Do not respond directly to the USGS!
Deadline for response:
Emails received after October 5, 2020 will not be considered for this early screening program.
We plan to provide a list of interested student candidates to the USGS in early October, which they will review and notify selected parties later this year, with an invitation to apply when the positions and process are complete. This would be an invitation to apply to the USGS, not an offer of an Internship position!
If you know of a student who might be qualified and interested in participating in this early screening program, please advise them to register with GISCI and respond to me, as per the above.
Further information regarding the USGS Internship program, in general, can be found on their web site under the USGS/DOI internship Program description.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Bill Hodge, GISCI Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (847) 824-7768.
Thanks for your consideration!

Yamhill County Public Works Department (YCPW)
2060 Lafayette Avenue, McMinnville, Oregon 97128
Jordan Anderson, Roadside Vegetation Inventory Manager, YCPW
Susan Aldrich-Markham, Professor Emeritus, Oregon State University
Mark Lago, Public Works Director, YCPW
YCPW initiated the Roadside Vegetation Inventory (RVI) to collect geospatial data and photos from significant features within County rights-of-way. These are features that relate to issues in roadside vegetation management, including preventing erosion, controlling invasive plants and protecting native plants. At the end of the project period, the Interns present a summary of their findings, highlighting the important issues with maps, data analysis and photos. This information is used by YCPW in making roadside vegetation management decisions. The invasive species information is also used by the Yamhill Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) to develop and implement an integrated noxious weed control program targeting high priority species. The RVI is part of the implementation of the Yamhill County Roadside Vegetation Management Plan, adopted in February 2016.
The data are managed using ESRI software – ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Online and Collector for ArcGIS. The RVI database is maintained online, and data are collected using the GPS on cell phones, which can update the database in real time or be used off-line and synced with the database using Wi-Fi at the office. A part of the RVI database contains data that relate to invasive plant control on private land. This data is collected by the Invasive Species Program Coordinator at the SWCD (a position that is funded partly through a cooperative agreement with YCPW and partly through a grant from the Oregon State Weed Board). YCPW and SWCD cooperate on managing and revising the database, and they also collaborate on invasive plant control at sites where it is in their mutual interest.
The position requires a combination of office and fieldwork. Office work involves regular use of computers and prolonged sitting. Field work requires walking over rough or uneven terrain, sometimes in inclement weather, and carrying objects such as measuring tools and supplies. It also requires occasional hand-pulling of newly-discovered small patches of target highly invasive plants.
Candidates must possess a valid driver's license. Interns will drive a County-owned vehicle on the job.
Candidates must possess a cell phone with a camera and GPS capability.
Tasks – Interns will cooperate as partners on most tasks.
1.Completion of at least one college level course in GIS. Additional field experience is desirable.
2.Training in and ability to use the ESRI software suite.
3.Training in botany, agriculture or natural resources. Additional field experience is desirable.
4.Interest in native plants and invasive plants. Ability to recognize common Willamette Valley species of native and invasive plants.
5.Ability to create professional quality plant and landscape photography.
6.Ability to work independently and manage time in order to complete all tasks by the end of the project period, including the final PowerPoint presentation to the Roadside Vegetation Management Technical Advisory Committee.
Submit a letter explaining why you are interested in the position and outlining your qualifications. Specifically address each of the six qualifications listed. Include a list of appropriate courses taken in GIS and botany, agriculture or natural resources. Submit at least one letter of recommendation.
Email application letters to: Catherine Lindberg, YCPW, email@example.com. Selected candidates will be interviewed in person on a mutually agreed-on date.
