2013 Summer Internship for High School Students
This educational project provides paid summer internship opportunities, 8 weeks in duration, to students interested in careers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and professional administration at the NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC). This project offers opportunities for 10th and 11th grade students who will be juniors and seniors in the upcoming school year and is sponsored by the Educational Programs Office (EPO).
The GRC High School project engages students with an intensive internship experience in a research and development environment while under the guidance of a GRC scientist, engineer, technician, or administrative professional that serves as the student’s mentor. The project is designed to expand the student’s understanding of possible career choices that are available at NASA. The project schedule includes oral presentations and a variety of enrichment activities.
The EPO is committed to increasing the number and diversity of students from underrepresented and underserved communities in NASA-related STEM fields. Traditionally, underrepresented groups in STEM include females, African-American, Hispanics, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders (natives of the Philippines, Guam, American Samoa, or Micronesia), and disabled students. Please be advised that while the project is open to all equally qualified candidates, GRC is very interested in recruiting applicants who belong to a recognized underrepresented group in STEM.
Students seeking to participate in this project must apply at the OSSI website at http://intern.nasa.gov between February 14, 2013 and March 15, 2013.
