The National Park Service has formed several partnerships in order to sustain and expand the Geoscientists-In-the-Parks (GIP) program.
The Geological Society of America's GeoCorps™ America Program advertises the majority of the GIP positions (approximately 50 positions annually) and provides a convenient on-line application system. You must be a member of GSA to apply for a GeoCorps - GIP position (student membership costs $25). For information about GeoCorps GIP positions, see GSA's GeoCorps™ America website: rock.geosociety.org/g_corps
National Association of Geoscience Teachers Geoscience Teachers-in-the-Parks (GTIP) supports positions for earth scinece teachers at Mammoth Cave National Park, in cooperation with the park's Research Learning Center. The GTIP program will likely expand to include additional national parks in the future. For information about GTIP positions, see NAGT's GTIP website: http://nagt.org/nagt/programs/GTIP.html
The National Park Foundation, in partnership with the National Park Service, enriches America's national parks and programs through private support, safeguarding our heritage, and inspiring generations of national park enthusiasts. The National Park Foundation works to raise funds for key initiatives such as the Youth Programs. For more information about the National Park Foundation, visit: http://www.nationalparks.org/
Many other partners work directly with the Geological Society of America GeoCorps™ America Program.
