This internship offers the opportunity to help conduct field research on the Big Island of Hawaii with one of our research teams. These expeditions will focus on developing one of two publications during the summer of 2021. Interns are currently being selected to join one of our teams for the following publications:
1.) A photographic essay with short stories capturing the culture and landscape of the Big Island of Hawaii
2.) A trail and beach guide
Interns will complete pre-trip investigative research, conduct action research for 1 week in Hawaii and spend 2 months wrapping up research from your home or university during the summer or fall semester.
Research will be in the areas of Hawaiian culture, geography, geology, wildlife, natural resources, economy, history, GIS mapping and tourism. This research will be used to develop a publication on one of the topics detailed above.
- Action Research at expedition destination (8 days during July or August).
- Mobile Research from any location (1-3 months/10 hours per week following field research)
- Interested in earning college credit? We will work with your university to ensure that you receive 3-6 credits for your contribution to the field guide.
