NC Space Grant collaborates with NASA centers, industry partners, research organizations and other national Space Grant partners to provide hands-on research experiences to higher-education students through meaningful internships. Although this year’s internships with NASA centers will be held remotely, students will still have opportunities to engage in innovative research under the supervision of a NASA mentor.

“It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome another class of students to expand their horizons through summer internships,” says Jobi Cook, NC Space Grant’s associate director. “We appreciate NASA and industry partners’ continuous flexibility and commitment to interns, as well as our interns’ tenacity and dedicated participation, which will make for a meaningful and productive summer.”

Internships are an integral part of the professional development process, enabling motivated students to visualize and carve pathways to aerospace and aviation careers in North Carolina and across the nation. NC Space Grant is pleased to support students as they cultivate new skills and take an active role in creating the future of NASA and the aerospace field.
