NASA 2013 Summer Internship Applications Due March 15, 2013

One Stop Shopping Initiative Website

The NASA One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI) provides students at higher education institutions access to a portfolio of internship, fellowship, and scholarship opportunities offered by NASA mission directorates and NASA centers.

Visit the OSSI LaunchPad to find information about internship, fellowship, and scholarship opportunities. The site features the OSSI: Student Online Application for Recruiting Interns, Fellows, and Scholars (SOLAR). This innovative system allows students to search and apply for all types of higher-education NASA internship, fellowship, and scholarship opportunities in ONE location. A single application places the student in the applicant pool for consideration by NASA mentors.

Applications for summer opportunities are due March 15, 2013.

Visit http://intern.nasa.gov/index.html to find available opportunities and fill out a SOLAR application.
