GSL's Summer 2022 Intern Class!
GSL hosted 19 undergraduate and graduate students this summer as part of the largest internship class ever. The students come from a variety of programs, and for the first time, GSL partnered with CIRES to create a summer internship program for 11 students. Our other interns are through the NOAA Ernest F. Hollings Scholarship, NOAA William M. Lapenta Internship, NOAA Experiential Research and Training Opportunities - NERTO, and NOAA Center for Atmospheric Sciences and Meteorology/NOAA Educational Partnership Program.
All of the students will present a poster or presentation about their research at the end of the summer. Meet the 2022 cohort below!
