Summer Internships at NASA, APL, and STScI

Applications for Summer 2019 NASA internships are open. The deadline is March 31, 2019 but it is better to apply as early as possible (see below).

The application period for summer NASA internships opens early in the fall and closes in the spring. However, applications are considered and offers are made on a rolling basis. For 2019, offers are expected within the timeframe of January 16–March 31. 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 open, 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:
