New DCL GeoHealth INTERN

May 25, 2023


The Directorate for Geosciences (GEO) has released a Dear Colleague Letter announcing an opportunity for Graduate Student Supplemental Funding to Link Geosciences and Human Health (GeoHealth INTERN). The GEO Directorate encourages requests from GEO grantees and their students who are able to apply their knowledge and skills to advance research in medicine and public health.  The GeoHealth INTERN opportunity is intended to foster collaboration around high-priority challenges in human health caused by our changing natural environment. These challenges include, but are not limited to, air quality; wildfire aerosols and particulates; nano/microplastics; forever chemicals; extreme temperatures; fluvial and groundwater quality; heavy metal transport in natural waters; harmful algal blooms, ocean-borne disease, and downstream impacts from mining and other natural resource extractive industries.

Grantees from all core programs within the NSF Directorate for Geosciences (GEO) are eligible to participate in this opportunity.
