NASA Internships

I am hoping you would be willing to share the information below with your students!

NASA is still actively recruiting interns for its paid summer internship program! Internships are available in a wide variety of disciplines including engineering, physics, astronomy, life and earth sciences, and even some business and finance.

The deadline is March 1st. To apply, visit to complete your base application and apply for up to 15 specific internship opportunities.

You may be interested in the attached flyer and the information below which highlights internships available at two of NASA's largest recent centers -- Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California. Hundreds of internship opportunities are available!

--- NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center anticipates hosting at least 400 student interns this summer ---

NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., leads the world in scientific discovery and understanding. Goddard is the home of innovative Earth science, astrophysics, heliophysics and planetary science. The center's diverse and talented team is responsible for each breakthrough emerging from Goddard laboratories. From high school interns to accomplished Nobel Prize winners, each member of the Goddard team plays a vital role in mission success.

Goddard is a science and engineering Center, with enabling technologies like computer science and IT management, to support missions to explore and observe the Earth from space, the study of the sun, exploration of the solar system, and to address big questions such as the origins of life on Earth.

GSFC studies the Earth from space with missions like the Global Precipitation Measurement Mission, or GPM. GPM is an international satellite mission to provide next-generation observations of rain and snow worldwide every three hours, and is scheduled for launch on February 27th.

GSFC studies the Universe and is now building the James Webb Space Telescope. Scheduled for launch in 2018, the JWST is a large space observatory that will operate in an orbit some 1 million miles from Earth to find the first galaxies that formed in the early universe.

--- NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory anticipates hosting internships covering at least 45 different research topics! ---

We offer internships and fellowships for undergraduate and graduate students throughout the year. Students are engaged in research projects under the guidance of JPL scientists and engineers, and experience the process of research as a creative intellectual activity. Our goal is to further students' pursuit of careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Research projects are offered in areas such as computer science, robotics, mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, astrophysics, electrical engineering, as well as planetary, geological and biological sciences.

In August 2013, JPL was named one of "The 10 Most Awesome College Labs of 2013" by Popular Science.
