NASA Internships are competitive awards to support educational opportunities that provide unique NASA-related research and operational experiences for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students, as well as educators. These opportunities serve students by integrating interns with career professionals emphasizing mentor-directed, degree-related tasks, while contributing to the operation of a NASA facility or the advancement of NASA’s missions.

NASA Fellowships are competitive awards to support independently conceived or designed research, or senior design projects by highly qualified faculty, undergraduate, and graduate students, in disciplines needed to help advance NASA’s missions, thus affording them the opportunity to directly contribute to advancements in STEM-related areas of study. Our Fellowship opportunities are focused on innovation, and generate measurable research results that contribute to NASA’s current and future science and technology goals.

NASA International Interns (I2) are university undergraduate or graduate students, who are non-US citizens, nominated by the NASA I2foreign partners to participate in the project. Interns must have expertise and background in technical areas of interest to NASA. Each partnering country first identifies an appropriate office or agency, usually a national space agency or other governmental partner, such as a Ministry of Education to administer NASA I2 in that country. That entity then signs an international reimbursable Space Act Agreement with NASA.
