Internships at NASA centers

The One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI): Student Online Application for Recruiting Interns, Fellows, and Scholar (SOLAR) is "a NASA-wide system for the recruitment, application, selection and career development of undergraduate and graduate students primarily in science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines. Opportunities for students in other disciplines are available." Using the SOLAR web site, a student can search and apply for multiple NASA opportunities using a single application.

Eligibility:
The New York Space Grant Consortium is one of the many organizations that anticipates funding undergraduate students for NASA summer 2013 internships. To be eligible for NY Space Grant funding, a full-time student must (1) be a United States citizen, and (2) be a New York state resident or attend a New York college/university, and (3) be majoring in a STEM (science, technology, engineering, or math) discipline. Additional eligibility requirements exist for each specific internship opportunity. Females and students from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
