Program Description
The NASA Solar Terrestrial Probes (STP)/Living With a Star (LWS) Summer Internship offers an opportunity to students to contribute directly to NASA Goddard Space Flight Center's (GSFC) missions. We pair up students with a variety of professionals that help support the Sun-Earth Connection program. The Summer Internship Program was established for the benefit of high school and undergraduate college students interested in degrees in engineering and space science - disciplines of vital interest to GSFC. Since its inception it has grown into a program that also provides internship experience in supporting offices like Education & Public Outreach and Public Affairs. The program is intended to encourage students to both pursue and earn engineering and space science degrees and to enhance their interest in careers at GSFC by exposing them to its professional resources and facilities.
