NASA Summer 2018 Internship Application Period Begins

Date: 10/18/2017

NASA internships are educational hands-on opportunities that provide unique NASA-related research and operational experiences for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students as well as educators. These internships integrate participants with career professionals emphasizing mentor-directed, degree-related, real-time world task completion. During the internship, participants engage in scientific or engineering research, development, and operations activities. In addition, there are non-technical internship opportunities to engage in professional activities which support NASA business and administrative processes. Through these internships, participants leverage NASA's unique mission activities and mentorship to enhance and increase their professional capabilities and clarify their long-term career goals.

The Summer 2018 NASA internship application period opens on Wednesday, October 18, 2017, and closes on Thursday, March 1, 2018. Submit internship applications at
