Guest Scientist Program Overview
The GeoCorps Guest Scientist Program has evolved as a branch of GeoCorps America. Traditionally, most GeoCorps participants have been university students for whom it is beneficial to spend time during the summer on a public land gaining on-the-ground experience in geoscience-related fields.
However, many public lands have needs for a higher level of expertise, or for a longer-term project than a three-month GeoCorps project can offer. Through the Guest Scientists program, lands are able to submit geoscience-related projects that require up to one year’s time and/or expertise within a specific field.
