  • Internship Program

    Since its inception, NGRRECâ„  has hosted a highly successful experiential learning internship program. The program not only seeks to transfer knowledge, but also actively engages students in field experimentation, critical thinking, synthesis and presentation of ideas, and leadership in project-level research.

    Students are assigned specific river research projects, conduct field experimentation, gain invaluable experience using data/specimen collection and cataloging protocols, and learn out to analyze, synthesize, and interpret data and translate these into research reports. Finally, they experience the challenge and exhilaration of presenting their findings in a symposium specifically designed for student interns.
