AHS-Sponsored Intern Scholarships
AHS proudly sponsors a unique intern scholarship program, which
is administered by the Flagstaff, Phoenix, and Tucson Chapters.
We’re now seeking applicants for three awards.
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.
