Each summer, Pinhead Institute places regional students at renowned scientific institutions for 6 to 10 weeks to work with leading researchers on critical issues facing the world today including biodiversity, indigenous cultures, influenza study, sustainability, habitat loss, and climate change.

Founded in 2003, the Pinhead Internship Program provides students with the opportunity to gain practical skills and experience in various scientific fields of study, including (but not limited to) math, physics, conservation, chemistry, biology, and much more. Pinhead internships provide experience and opportunities for students to work with people who have dedicated their lives to academic pursuits about which they are passionate.

This program affords high school students from Cortez, Montrose, Norwood, Nucla, Olathe, Ouray, Ridgway, and Telluride opportunities not available in our region, and it often is a life changing experience.
