Summer Internships at NASA, APL, and STScI

A summer internship is a great way to gain new skills, refine your interests, and boost your resumé.

Apply for the upcoming cycle through the NASA system at:

The application period for summer NASA internships opens early in the fall and closes in the spring (this year’s deadline is March 8, 2020). However, applications are considered and offers are made on a rolling basis. In 2019, most offers were made within the January-April timeframe. In general, it’s not wise to wait for the deadline — the earlier you apply, the better your chances!

The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) and the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) also host summer internship programs.

APL hires hundreds of summer interns each year. Several programs are currently available, including general college-level internships as well as opportunities specific to JHU students or students attending minority serving institutions. For more information or to apply, visit:

STScI will again run its Space Astronomy Summer Program, with applications due in January:
