AGI seeks outstanding geoscience and geo-related engineering students (undergraduate or masters) with a strong interest in federal science policy for a semester or summer internship. Interns will gain a first-hand understanding of the legislative process and the operation of executive branch agencies. They will hone their writing and web publishing skills. Each summer the AGI/AIPG interns write articles that are published in The Professional Geologist. The articles are available from the Government Affairs Articles website. Interns have the opportunity to write articles for other publications
Stipends for the interns are generously supported by AGI, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists and the American Institute of Professional Geologists Foundation.
