Summer Internship Program

Summer Internship Program at NASA Centers
NSBRI’s summer program provides the opportunity for undergraduate, graduate or medical students from across the country to join ongoing project activities and gain hands-on experience in space biomedical research at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX, NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, OH, and NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, CA.

Since 1998, 136 students representing over 70 colleges and universities have participated in the 10-15 week program. The program pays interns an hourly wage but does not cover housing or travel.
