Internships at NASA centers

The One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI): Student Online Application for Recruiting Interns, Fellows, and Scholars 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 OSSI web site, a student can search and apply for multiple NASA opportunities using a single application.

Depending on funding from NASA, the New York Space Grant Consortium is one of the many organizations that anticipates funding undergraduate students for NASA summer 2017 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. Women and students from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.

March 1, 2017 is the deadline for submitting summer 2017 applications through OSSI. However, students are strongly encouraged to complete applications ASAP, since internship offers may be extended as early as February 2017.
