2015 NASA Internships for Students with Disabilities

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

To Prospective NASA Student Interns with Disabilities,

NASA is looking to increase the number of students with disabilities pursuing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers through our internship programs. Disability means both physical and mental disabilities. NASA has a two-percent hiring goal for employment of people with disabilities and internships are a good way to get experience. Students can apply for Summer 2015 internships, starting on Monday, November 10, 2014. The deadline for submitting applications is Sunday, March 1, 2015, and we will begin extending offers to students in early 2015. We encourage you to apply early because the best opportunities are likely to be filled early. Plus, your likelihood of being selected decreases the longer you wait. You can register for an account anytime at the One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI): NASA Internships, Fellowships, and Scholarships (NIFS) at http://intern.nasa.gov/. Summer 2015 internships run for ten weeks for college students and six weeks for high school students. All student interns get paid. For example, last Summer, at Goddard college students received a stipend of $6,000 and high school students $2,100. As an intern, you are responsible for your own housing. NASA internships for college and high school students are also offered during Spring, Fall and Year Long Sessions through the OSSI website.

NASA has internships for high school students and for rising freshmen through doctoral students in STEM fields. A rising freshman is a high school student who has been accepted to an accredited institution of higher learning, i.e., a college or university, at the time of the internship. Applicants must be U.S. citizens, with a minimum GPA of 3.0 for college and 3.0 for high school; however, applicants must understand that the competition for internships is keen. High school students must be at least sixteen years old at the time the internship begins.

November Events by N1YXU

TS-480 transceiver & LDG AT-200 Pro autotuner

Every morning, when I leave home to head to work, I smile at the gorgeous colors of the leaves in our backyard. Even though I have seen the visual changes of the seasons for many years, I am always just amazed by the beauty of autumn. I hope that you are enjoying the change of season as well.

Later this month, I hope that each of you can truly count your blessings and celebrate Thanksgiving with friends and family.

Until next month….

Regards,
