*While we have created a list of minimum qualifications for the program, there is no single path to geophysics. Thus, the selection committee is interested in your training in physics, math, geoscience and computer skills and takes holistic approach to the selection process.
Special Notice for Summer 2023 :The IRIS Undergraduate Internship program has been renamed URISE - Undergraduate Research Internships in SEismology as part of IRIS' transition to a new organization called EarthScope. Beyond the name change, we are not anticipating any significant changes to the program at this time.
Decisions for all students will be made by approximately the end of March annually. To help ensure a strong match between interns and hosts, when possible, accepted interns will be able to select a project that most interests them. The matching of interns and projects will take place between March 15 and March 30th, annually. Specific end dates for individual projects, travel and financial arrangements will be negotiated between the host and the accepted interns.
