The Office of Education (OE) at NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) is currently recruiting for our 2015 internship, fellowship, and scholarship programs. Please see the attached PDF for more details about these opportunities including how to apply.
Summer Internships Application Dates: November 10, 2014 – March 1, 2015 at https://intern.nasa.gov/.
Higher Education: The Glenn Research Center (GRC) manages and implements a number of NASA and Center-unique Higher Education (HE) programs for college STEM students. The programs for undergraduate and graduate students embody opportunities in NASA Internships, Fellowships and Scholarships (NIFS) some of which are offered on-site at GRC, while others are attainable on university and college campuses. On-site GRC tenure for students is typically complemented with developmental programs to enrich/enhance participants’ experience. In particular, the HE programs seek to:
- Train students in the conduct of research, while instilling in them STEM competencies needed for next the generation of scientists and engineers, to help replenish and sustain NASA and theUS workforce;
- Promote the infusion of NASA mission content in classroom teaching, to help keep students motivated in STEM courses, leading to related careers to promote advancement of NASA mission.
Lewis’ Educational and Research Collaborative Internship Project (LERCIP) is a Center-unique ten week paid summer college internship experience at the NASA Glenn Research facility. Internships are in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, as well as the non-STEM professional business career majors that provide support to NASA’s mission. LERCIP provides opportunities to graduating high school seniors, undergraduates and graduate students. LERCIP interns are involved in mission-related projects under the guidance of a GRC mentor and subject matter expert who engages them in exciting work with exposure to state-of-the-art technology. The dates of the two sessions are below.
- Session #1: June 1, 2015 – August 7, 2015
- Session #2: June 15, 2015 – August 21, 2015
We are asking that you consider being our point of contact (POC) to spread the word to students about these opportunities. As a POC you will do the following:
- Post the fliers on your website and make copies to give to eligible students
- Send an email with NASA Internship in the subject line to GRC-Intern@mail.nasa.govwith the names of the students who have applied for an internship.
Your support in spreading the word to your students about these exceptional program opportunities would be greatly appreciated. Please reply to this email if you consent to being our POC or with any questions.
