HCC Summer Bridge Internships

Hagerstown Community College students: Are you interested in Space? Aeronautics? Robotics? Astrophysics?  Or any other STEM field of study of relevance to NASA? Then read on!

Each summer, MDSGC supports one or more paid summer internships for HCC students interested in the above who are (1) U.S. citizens; (2) pursuing a STEM major; and (3) considering enrolling at one of the following universities: Capitol Technology University, Johns Hopkins University, Morgan State University, Towson University, University of Maryland College Park, University of Maryland Baltimore County, or University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

HCC students who will have completed at least one year of studies by summer can apply for this opportunity. For successful applicants, the Maryland Space Grant Consortium will arrange and fund a 10-week summer internship at any of the above universities focused in the area of your choice. By the end of the summer, in addition to the hands-on research experience of the internship itself, you will also have had the opportunity to get to know the environment of the university campus you may ultimately attend.

As of mid-April 2018, summer 2018 positions have been filled! To get an idea about how to prepare for next year’s opportunity, have a look at the application form, and see what kind of internship projects MDSGC sponsors here or here.
