Above, left to right, new 2020 summer interns Chloe Schneider, Auston Gray and Bryce Abbott begin their internships soon, along with 11 others at multiple NASA centers and programs and the HyperSizer Corporation.

North Carolina Space Grant is excited to announce the selection of the 2020 class of summer interns, who will embark on research projects at various NASA centers and aerospace companies that will equip them with experience for their future careers. 

The collaboration between NC Space Grant, NASA centers, and other research and industry partners creates a unique experience for higher-education students who want to apply their academic training to real-world projects. Interns will not only help conduct experiments, but will also develop useful connections with the mentors guiding them through their internships.

Internships are an integral part of professional and career development for students and give students the opportunity to see themselves in different disciplines of aerospace and aviation. These are just some of the reasons NC Space Grant is committed to providing students the resources and support to get involved in these educational experiences. 

As a solution to navigating the current world of social distancing guidelines due to COVID-19, the NASA centers and other involved organizations are implementing new strategies to allow interns to still gain precious experience through a remote internship model. This 2020 class of interns will be the first students to be immersed in this new initiative.
