New Summer Intern Program

NASATexas Space Grant Consortium, and The University of Texas at Austin Center for Space Research Summer Intern Program is a nationally competitive STEM program for high school students. The program provides selected students with exposure to Earth and space research. Interns will learn how to interpret NASA satellite data while working with scientists and engineers in their chosen area of work.

Scientists and Engineers at UT/CSR are conducting NASA supported research on astronomy, remote sensing, and space geodetic techniques to help understand Earth systems, natural hazards and climate science. This summer TSGC and UT/CSR will support a summer intern program where interns will work remotely prior to their on-site internship July 13-27, 2019. Housing, meals, and local transportation will be provided for those selected. A limited number of travel scholarships to Texas are available. The summer intern program will allow interns to view and investigate NASA remote sensing data including CSR analysis of ice sheets, Earth’s gravity field, and other satellite observations while being mentored by project scientists.

We are offering summer internships to motivated high school students who have an interest in pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics careers. The interns will work beside CSR scientists analyzing and visualizing data. This content knowledge, coupled with hands-on experiences, allows the intern to gain experience in authentic NASA research through field investigation and data analysis.

Interns are selected on the basis of their academic records, written application that includes written essay questions, introduction video, letter of recommendation and interest in STEM. The deadline for submitting your application for the summer 2019 internship program is March 1, 2019.
