[Available: Nationally]

The NASA Student Internship Project, or SIP, is designed for students whose primary interest is in space-related research. SIP is an intensive, 10-week, summer research project for diverse undergraduate and graduate students interested in careers in aerospace-related fields. SIP brings students from universities to Goddard Space Flight Center to support ongoing research projects, generally by participating in a project that has received an award from the Director's Discretionary Fund. These funds are allocated competitively to GSFC's most innovative researchers. Students team with a Principal Investigator, or P.I., at GSFC for cutting-edge research in science or engineering. The students may have the opportunity to participate in field trips to other NASA centers, as well as to local space industry sites. Students with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation services.

To be eligible, participants must be enrolled at the junior, senior or early graduate level as of May of the project year. They must have a GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Their major must be in engineering, science, math, computer science or other areas related to the aerospace program. The interns must also be U. S. citizens or permanent residents as of May of the project year.

The duration is usually 10 weeks, but may vary depending on P.I. and student availability.

The internships run from June through August.
