Our three summer internship programs—RESESS, Geo-Launchpad, and USIP—launched
at the end of May
Undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of backgrounds are
spending the (rapidly dwindling) summer working with mentors on research
projects and UNAVCO projects. (More on that below.)

After pivoting to a virtual format in 2020, a hybrid schedule was adopted
this year. Following an introductory week in Boulder, RESESS and
Geo-Launchpad interns stayed to work with their mentors in-person through
the end of June. The remainder of the program is remote.

This year's interns aren't the only ones with news to share, of course! For
example, 2020 RESESS intern Jae Bridges recently let us know they had
been accepted
into the graduate program
at Ohio University—to work with none other than 2007-2010 RESESS alum Prof.
Katherine Fornash!

GAGE and SAGE extended

Instead of being the focus of an immediate recompetition, the ongoing scope
and programs of NSF's GAGE and SAGE awards will be extended under the
current community governance structure until 2025. Updates on the ongoing
process of joining UNAVCO and IRIS can be found on the merger website.
