Welcome to the FieldXP Program! Open to undergraduate students at US based institutions only!
The FieldXP program pairs undergraduate students looking for a field experience with geoscience researchers who need assistance in the field. IRIS will provide up to $1000 of support for students to assist with travel and field logistics.
The program is designed to increase awareness of and encourage participation in short-duration field experiences for undergraduate students who may have an interest in geoscience but have never taken a course or participated in fieldwork. In addition, the program is designed to support the IRIS community’s needs to attract and vet applications for field crews to support their research. The ultimate goal of FieldXP is to expand the geoscience workforce, by enabling participants to transition either into full seismology/geophysics internships, or directly into seismology/geophysics graduate programs.
We encourage both students and mentors to apply as early as possible so that we can begin to make matches quickly. Matches will be made on a rolling basis.
