Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) Summer Intern Program in Planetary Science -
Experience cutting-edge research in the planetary sciences at LPI or Johnson Space Center working one-on-one with top-notch planetary scientists. Open to both U.S. citizens and foreign nationals.

Langley Aerospace Research Summer Scholars (LARSS).
The LARSS program is a 10-week summer internship at NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC). Students pursuing degrees in aeronautical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, materials science, computer science, atmospheric science, astrophysics, physics, chemistry, or selected aerospace disciplines of interest to LaRC and students with other majors that lend support to NASA's Mission in special project areas such as business administration, public administration, finance, communications, journalism, accounting, and media arts are also invited to apply. Applicants must be U.S. citizen.

Langley Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Internship Program.
The GIS Internship Program is open to community college, undergraduate, and graduate students majoring in the fields of geography, technology, and civil engineering with experience in geospatial technology or an interest in developing their skills in spatial data technology in support of NASA's mission.

Space Telescope Science Institute Summer Student Program.
Each summer the Space Telescope Science Institute brings 15 to 20 students to Baltimore, Maryland, for a Space Astronomy Summer Program (SASP). SASP lasts ten weeks and students work with researchers and staff on projects ranging from astronomical research to science writing, software development, and preparation of scientific data for public release. There are no restrictions on who may apply, foreign students may apply.

NASA Planetary Biology Internship Program (PBI).
PBI provides opportunities to explore scientific questions of global scale about planet Earth. For six to eight weeks, students get a one-time opportunity to travel outside their home institutions to participate in research related to NASA's planetary biology objectives.

Lloyd V. Berkner Space Policy Internships.
The goal of the program is to provide promising undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to work in the area of civil space research policy in the Nation's capital, under the aegis of the Space Studies Board.
National Space Society (NSS) Internships - Due March 15, 2012
Be a part of the NSS team helping to further the cause of human space exploration and habitation. The NSS is a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit organization with more than 22,000 members that promotes space exploration and development. NSS activities include publishing an award-winning bimonthly magazine (Ad Astra) and working to educate Congress and the public on the importance of space activities. Volunteer positions only, minimum 8-weeks.

NASA History Division Internship Opportunity:
We primarily want an enthusiastic person who is a quick learner. Detailed prior knowledge of the aeronautics and space fields is not necessary, but a keen interest and some basic familiarity with these topics is needed. Since we deal with the historical aspects of science and technology policy, strong research, writing, and editing skills are key. Thus, social science majors who are interested in natural science might be best, although we would be glad to talk to any interested student.
