Internship Application Process 2013
NASA Internships are a fun, challenging way to build professional experience. Internships are offered year-round for students studying engineering, mathematics, computer science, the physical/life sciences, and much more. In years past, students have had to apply for internships at each of the NASA centers. NASA has now developed the ONE STOP SHOPPING INITIATIVE (OSSI) Launchpad and the STUDENT ON-LINE APPLICATION for RECRUITING (SOLAR) interns website for applicants. Students can apply to all the centers at once through the program.
Internship applications are due March 15, 2013!
ALL IDAHO APPLICANTS PLEASE BE SURE TO CONTACT
THE ISGC TO LET US KNOW YOU ARE APPLYING
OSSI:SOLAR internship opportunities include:
NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory Internship Program (JPL)
NASA Ames Internship Program
NASA Johnson Space Center Internship Program (JSC)
NASA Marshall Space Flight Center Intership Program (MSFC)
Internship Opportunities NOT Offered By OSSI
NASA Academies represent an immersive and integrated multidisciplinary exposure and training, for students with various backgrounds and career aspirations of critical importance to the National aerospace program. NASA Academies are faciliated at many NASA centers around the country. Click here for the Academy program descriptions.

Applications are now being accepted for the Achieving Competence in Computing, Engineering and Space Science project, also known as ACCESS. This 10-week, paid internship at NASA centers around the U.S. is designed for undergraduate and graduate students with disabilities.
Applicants should have strong backgrounds in science, a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and a desire to pursue technical careers. Students who are chosen will work with scientists and engineers in an area compatible with their skills and interests.

Please e-mail any questions about this opportunity to Laureen Summers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Langley Aerospace Research Summer Scholars (LARSS) Program is managed for NASA by the Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) under the auspices of the National Institute of Aerospace (NIA). The LARSS Program provides paid internship opportunities year round for eligible students during spring, summer, or fall sessions. Participants gain exciting hands-on research experience while working side-by-side with NASA’s finest scientists and engineers who serve as mentors at NASA Langley Research Center.
Application Deadline: February, 1, 2013
The next Helicopter/UAV workshop supported by the CT Space Grant Consortium will be held on June 16-21, 2013 at Central Connecticut State University (CCSU).

The Cooperative Space Grant Education Program, sponsored by NASA Ames and developed by the University of California Extension, Santa Cruz links students and faculty with projects at NASA Ames Research Center. Students and faculty members, from undergraduate to post doctoral level, at any accredited U.S. university, may participate as Education Associates (EAs). EAs must be either U.S. citizens or permanent resident aliens. The most relevant backgrounds are in the fields of engineering, information systems and communications, space science, physical sciences, life sciences, behavioral sciences, and mathematics.
The NASA EAP is a year-round program and has a variety of time frames available.

Carlos Gonzalez on his summer research:
"The DSN open-loop telemetry demodulation method down-converts and records spacecraft signals in pre-selected bandwidth using predicted frequency profiles. Radio Science techniques provide more flexibility and robustness in the acquisition, processing, and interpretation than the closed loop system. I helped designing a graphical user interface to run the demodulation quickly and efficiently. I also performed simulations using a tool known as SOAP, to model the orbit of the International Space Station and modeled the uplink and downlink times from ISS to satellites called TDRS. The 3rd task involved the real time operation of the New Horizons Mission and controlling the Deep Space Network Radio Science Receivers remotely from JPL. We tested the real time monitoring and recording of the downlink signal from New Horizons in order to verify whether or not the spacecraft was working properly."

David Gardner on his experience working at Ames:
"Working for NASA at Ames has been a great experience. The researchers and people we get to work with are amazing and the work we do is truly fascinating. It is exciting to have this opportunity to work on projects that are so cutting edge and challenging. Also, the work environment at NASA Ames is incredible with so many different projects happening all at one place. We really have access to a wide breadth of information.”
