Program Summary


The National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) is "Where America's Climate and Weather Services Begin." Virtually all the meteorological data collected over the globe arrives at NCEP, where  scientists analyze this information and generate a wide variety of environmental guidance information. NCEP delivers national and global weather, water, climate and space weather guidance, forecasts, warnings and analyses to a broad range of users and partners. These products and services respond to user needs to protect life and property, enhance the nation's economy, and support the nation's growing need for environmental information.

NCEP is offering up to 20 paid summer internships targeted towards current 2nd and 3rd year undergraduate and enrolled graduate students to work in areas that will meet the future needs of the ever-broadening user community and address the strategic climate-water-weather issues. Each student will collaborate with one or more scientists at our five centers located in College Park, MD: Climate Prediction Center, Environmental Modeling Center, NCEP Central Operations, Ocean Prediction Center, and Weather Prediction Center. Students may also be placed at NWS Offices in Silver Spring, MD: Meteorological Development Laboratory and the AWIPS Program.
