Nathan Eidem, a senior Geography major and Biology minor from Kearney at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, has received a Summer 2003 Internship with the National Geographic Society in Washington, D.C. Eidem is one of 30 students from 100 undergraduate and graduate applicants from across the country to be selected.

The National Geographic Society’s highly respected and competitive Geography Intern Program has run continuously since its inception in the summer of 1981. The purpose of the program is to furnish students with a professional learning experience through participation in various projects aimed at the diffusion of geographic knowledge.

Interns are given the opportunity to apply knowledge and classroom techniques to practical publication procedures or other geographic outreach projects. Interns are assigned to work in one of the many divisions within the Society such as www.nationalgeographic.com, one of the magazines, books, or maps.

Eidem will intern from May 19 to August 22 in the books division.
