NASA Internships

STUDENT INTERNSHIPS AT NASA

NASA Centers across the U.S. offer a variety of internships. These internships are nationally competitive and only the highest qualified applicants will be considered. The NASA application process can be lengthy so be sure to get an early start.

Many of these internships require funding from the state-based Space Grant Consortia for the internship stipends. This requires applying to both NASA and the Nebraska Space Grant.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • U.S. Citizenship

  • GPA: 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (a 2.9 GPA may be rounded up to 3.0)

  • Underrepresented minorities and women are strongly encouraged to participate

  • Undergraduate and graduate students enrolled full-time in a degree-granting program at an accredited college or university in Nebraska.

In order to be eligible for funding from the Nebraska Space Grant, students need to complete 2 applications: one to NASA to be considered for the internship placement at NASA, and one to the Nebraska Space Grant to be considered for the funding. Oftentimes, a NASA Center will receive the internship application and they may be interested in inviting a student to work with them; however, they may not have the funds available to pay the student. They will then turn to the Nebraska Space Grant as the funding source. We will need to have the form completed in this online application system to consider a student for funding.
