High School Internships at Glenn – Applications now being accepted starting November 10, 2014
The Glenn High School Internship Project (GHIP) 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 educational 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 NASA GRC Office of Education (OE).
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 OE is committed to increasing the number and diversity of students from underrepresented and under-served 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.
