Engage with Geoscience on U.S. Public Lands

The application deadline for spring/summer 2020 opportunities passed on 2 February 2020, so most sites are no longer accepting applications. However, please check the opportunities list to see which sites are currently accepting applications.

GeoCorps™ America is a program of the Geological Society of America, operated in partnership with government agencies and other organizations committed to science and stewardship. Current partners include the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service.

This program offers paid short-term geoscience opportunities in some of the most beautiful natural areas in the world. GeoCorps project topics include geology, hydrology, paleontology, mapping and GIS, minerals, soils, glaciology, geo-hazards, karst, education, and interpretation.

NEW: Each GeoCorps project will only accept the first 100 applicants. GSA recommends adding your project selections when setting up your online application. You can always go back and edit a project selection before the seasonal application deadline passes.

Learn more about the experiences of GeoCorps alumni via GSA's guest blog, "Speaking of Geoscience."
