Lewis' Educational & Research Collaborative Internship Project
[Students Grades 12-Higher Education]
Lewis' Educational & Research Collaborative Internship Project, or LERCIP, is an educational, summer opportunity for eligible college students (graduating high school seniors through doctoral candidates) from across the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
Students receive a 10-week, paid internship and, if eligible, travel reimbursement. The project provides students with introductory professional experiences to complement their academic programs and research interests primarily in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers.
Students work under the guidance of Glenn Research Center scientists or engineers who serve as the students' mentors. The project gives students first-hand experience in a research and development environment. Students are able to see how their academic majors fit into career fields at NASA. learn about possible career choices in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Activities include oral presentations and a variety of enrichment experiences. The internships are offered under the auspices of LERCIP and are a collaborative undertaking of GRC's Educational Programs Office and the Ohio Aerospace Institute. Candidates must be U.S. citizens.
