NESSI seeks to involve students from groups that are historically underrepresented in the sciences, including Black or African-American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Hispanic or Latino, female, first-generation college students, veterans, LGBTQ+ students, and students with disabilities.

NCAR is committed to providing enriching internship opportunities, but due to the uncertainty of the ongoing pandemic of COVID-19, we are planning for a fully virtual NESSI program in summer 2021. We are actively monitoring the developing situation surrounding the spread of COVID-19. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding during this time. We look forward to reviewing your application.
