Glenn's Student Ambassadors
NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland welcomes dozens of high school, college and graduate students as interns every year. Through programs including the Undergraduate Student Research Program (USRP), Lewis' Educational and Research Collaborative Internship Program (LERCIP) and Motivating Undergraduates in Science and Technology (MUST), students work at Glenn. They gain real-world work experience through the incomparable opportunity to work directly with world-class engineers, researchers and scientists.
Each year, NASA selects a group of interns and fellows from centers across the country and Headquarters to serve as student ambassadors. Interns who are selected for the NASA Student Ambassador Program engage their fellow undergraduate and graduate students in NASA science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), along with research and immersion opportunities. These students collaborate with and inspire their peers, make professional connections and represent NASA to the public.
In the 2010 class of ambassadors, 33 states and 81 universities are represented. Of the 105 student ambassadors this year, 10 were interns at Glenn.
The 10 student ambassadors that were nominated by Glenn have a variety of research interests, career paths and personal goals. Click on each name below to meet the student and learn about their experiences as a NASA ambassador.
