IODP-USIO Diversity Internship
Funded through the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program – U.S. Implementing Organization, the Diversity Internship was designed to expose minority students to careers in scientific ocean drilling by providing them with a 10-12 week (with the possibility of an extension if funding was available) educational and career building experience at one of the institutions that comprised the IODP-USIO. The internship also highlighted opportunities within the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program – U.S. Implementing Organization and science program management that encouraged students/interns to pursue advanced studies in Earth System Sciences (or complementary fields) and/or careers in scientific ocean drilling. The Integrated Ocean Drilling Program – U.S. Implementing Organization, which was one of the world’s largest international marine research programs, was dedicated to advancing understanding of Earth’s processes through scientific drilling of the ocean floor.
Internship opportunities and locations varied each year, and projects with a focus in science, engineering, IT, education, or communications were developed with IODP-USIO programmatic needs and priorities in mind.
