The National Geographic Society established its Geography Intern Program in 1981 to furnish qualified students with a professional learning experience. Over 30 years later, more than 800 university and college juniors, seniors, and master’s students majoring in geography or cartography have participated in the program by interning on various projects aimed at the increase and diffusion of geographic knowledge.
The program is designed to give students an opportunity to apply knowledge and techniques learned in the classroom to practical publication procedures or other geographic outreach projects at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C. In a given year, the Society offers a limited number of 12-week internships for the spring, summer, and fall.
