Q. Does Kennedy provide housing or a housing allowance for intern students?
A. Kennedy Space Center does not provide a housing allowance for intern students. Kennedy does, however, provide a listing of rental units that interns, who are returning to school, have informed the Intern Coordinator of their availability. The listing also includes names of Kenedy employees who have rooms and places for rent. We also provide new and returning interns the names, phone numbers and e-mail addresses of all interns who will be at work during the term as additional potential housing leads.

Q. Does NASA hire foreign nationals?
A. Because NASA is an agency of the government of the United States of America, employment with NASA is restricted to citizens of the United States of America. Also, although NASA does contract with private industry for services, generally these contracts are with major companies as opposed to individuals.

Q. How do I find out about Internships/Training Programs for non-US citizens?
The majority of internship programs that NASA Kennedy Space Center offers are for U.S. citizens. However, each of NASA's ten field centers handle their educational programs slightly differently, so you may wish to check each NASA Center to see if any of them offer training/internship programs for non-US citizens.
