Matanuska Glacier Park in Alaska

The Matanuska Glacier Park in Alaska is accepting applications for paid glacier intern positions this summer.  This amazing summer experience affords students the ability to earn money over the summer while gaining hands-on experience working on a glacier in the mountains of Alaska.


We have hosted several successful groups of interns over the years from colleges and universities across the United States.  Past students majored in environmental sciences, geology, biological sciences, glaciology, as well as some non-science majors (English, Government) seeking outdoors experience in Alaska.  Some students even pursued independent research activities leading to Senior Projects and GSA abstract publications!


Questions can be directed to our staff mailbox at the email address on the advertisement:  [email protected]


Thank you for sharing this opportunity with your students.
