The OSMRE Semester Internship Program was developed to support Agency and Bureau goals and provide participants with a meaningful work experience in OSMRE offices nationwide. Semester Interns are tasked with projects that significantly contribute to their professional development. 4. Recipients of OSMRE Semester Internship Program financial assistance will support an innovative partnership, working directly with OSMRE in the following areas: (1) community and environmental reclamation, (2) community environmental stewardship, (3) research, (4) data analysis, (5) geographic information systems, (6) mapping, and more. 5. The program is available to current students or recent graduates of an accredited institution of higher learning. Semester Interns serve ten (10) or fifteen (15) weeks in in OSMRE Headquarters, Regional and Field Offices. The Semester Internship Program runs three (3) internship semesters: Fall (August – December; 15 weeks); Spring (January – May; 15 weeks); and Summer (May – August; 10 weeks). 6. Some Semester Internship projects may fit within the guidelines for an AmeriCorps position as defined by the Corporation for National and Community Service. An AmeriCorps Member is an individual who engages in national service through an activity approved by the Corporation for National and Community Service, or an intermediate organization. Members receive a living allowance and other benefits while serving. Upon successful completion of their service, Members may earn a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award from the National Service Trust that Members can use to pay for higher education expenses or apply to qualified student loans. 7. Semester Internship projects that do not fit the requirements for an AmeriCorps position will be categorized as general intern positions and participants will be paid minimum wage in the state in which they are serving.
