AHS-Sponsored Intern Scholarships

AHS proudly sponsors a unique intern scholarship program, which is administered by the Flagstaff, Phoenix, and Tucson Chapters. We will be seeking applicants for three awards, with announcements of the program made in February.

Program Description

The Intern Scholars we select will have the unique opportunity to work in multiple hydrological environments. Companies and agencies that have participated in the past include ADEQ, ADWR, Tucson Water, the USGS, Montgomery & Associates, Brown and Caldwell, Clear Creek Associates, the USFS, the Glen Canyon Monitoring and Research Center, the City of Flagstaff, Four Corners Environmental, and the Phelps Dodge Corporation.

During his/her service, the Intern will gain experience in water sampling and other types of fieldwork, water-resource management, and data analysis, among other activities that are typical of an entry-level hydrology-related position. These experiences have the potential to help shape career paths; as such, the success of this program will depend largely on the Interns’ own motivation.


Students from any Arizona university or college who are enrolled in a hydrology-related field are invited to apply. Because the Interns must coordinate with numerous entities, AHS is looking for focused, responsible individuals with good communication skills and disciplined, highly organized work habits. After completing the program, the Interns must submit an article summarizing their experience for publication in the AHS newsletter. They will also be invited to receive the award at a Chapter meeting and at the AHS Annual Symposium.
