Internship Opportunities with NASA (mostly for summer 2015)
- The majority of NASA internship opportunities can be accessed through the ONE STOP SHOPPING INITIATIVE (OSSI) at https://intern.nasa.gov/ossi/web/public/main/ then follow the “Search Opportunities” link to find program(s) that interest you. Here you can complete a single application then be considered for internship opportunities at multiple NASA research centers! Go to https://intern.nasa.gov/ossi/web/public/main/index.cfm?solarAction=video (cut and paste link text if necessary) to see instructional videos or download a Powerpoint. The OSSI Summer 2015 internship on-line application is open from Nov. 10, 2014 to March 1, 2015 but offers will be made starting about Feb. 1, 2015, so get your application materials in as soon as possible! Internships are sponsored by the MN Space Grant Consortium. New internship opportunities are posted to OSSI regularly, so check back often!
- NASA Academies are for students interested in Leadership in aerospace-related careers. “Classic” Academies (AKA “Space” Academies) are available at Glenn Research Center, Ames Research Center, and Marshall Space Flight Center. “Aeronautics” Academies exist at Glenn Research Center, Ames Research Center, Armstrong Flight Research Center (formerly called Dryden), and Langley Research Center. There is also a “Propulsion” Academy and a “Robotics” Academy at Marshall Space Flight Center. NASA Academy applications are now being handled through OSSI (see links above). Internships sponsored by the MN Space Grant Consortium.
- Historically we have been successful in placing students with the Johnson Space Center (JSC) Space Grant Internship Program, the Marshall Space Flight Center Space Grant Research (MSGR) Internships, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Space Grant Internship Program, and with the many programs at Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) (some of which target specific applicant groups).
