Internships and Fellowships

NASA internships, fellowships and scholarships leverage NASA’s unique missions and programs to enhance and increase the capability, diversity and size of the nation’s future STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) workforce.

NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center offers hundreds of internship opportunities each year across four campuses located at:

  • Greenbelt, Maryland
  • Wallops Flight Facility, Wallops Island, Virginia
  • Goddard Institute For Space Studies, New York City
  • Independent Verification and Validation Facility, Fairmont, West Virginia

Internships are available at all levels of education from high school to graduate. Internships provide students with the opportunity to participate in either research or other experiential learning, under the guidance of a mentor at a NASA installation.

Eligibility Requirements

  • U.S. citizenship
  • GPA: 3.0 on a 4.0 scale
  • High school students
  • At least 16 years of age and a current sophomore, junior or senior
  • Undergraduate or graduate students
  • At the time the opportunity begins, must be accepted/enrolled full-time in an accredited U.S. college or university

NASA also offers undergraduate and graduate scholarships and fellowships to students who are pursuing STEM degrees. Application timelines are posted on the NASA OSSI website.

Student Career Opportunities

The NASA Pathways Intern Employment Program (IEP) is open to students that are currently enrolled or accepted for enrollment in a qualifying educational program.  The Pathways IEP provides opportunities to work and explore careers while still in school. Pathways IEP appointments may be for indefinite periods without not-to-exceed (NTE) dates or appointments with NTE dates of up to one year. If you successfully complete an appointment without an NTE date at NASA, you may be converted to permanent employment or term employment of up to six years. For more information, please visit http://nasajobs.nasa.gov/studentopps/default.htm.

To be eligible for NASA’s IEP, you must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen
  • Be at least 16 years of age
  • Be enrolled or accepted for enrollment on at least a half-time basis
  • Be pursuing a degree or certificate
  • Currently have and maintain a 2.9 grade point average
  • Be able to complete at least 640 hours of work prior to completing your degree/certificate requirements
  • Meet any other requirements described in the announcement (some IEP positions require you to be pursuing specific majors)

To find opportunities:

  • Federal agencies must post Intern opportunities on USAJOBS. You may go directly to USAJOBS to begin your search.
  • You may review current NASA IEP vacancies at Pathways Opportunities.
  • You may also create an account on USAJOBS and sign up to be automatically notified about vacancies meeting your interests.
