UC students can now apply for NASA Internships

UC students can now apply for NASA Internships under a new agreement between the space administration and the Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).

New Zealand Space Agency will be offering scholarships for up to four successful New Zealand students for NASA’s June 2019 intake.  The successful students getting a scholarship will attend the Ames centre base for a 10-16 week internship in Silicon Valley.

Students will also have the opportunity to build a network of contacts both within NASA and with US and international students taking part in the programme. Students will have an opportunity under the guidance of a NASA mentor.

This opportunity is open to all high-achieving New Zealand students to work with experts in space-related fields and have access to some of the world’s most advanced research facilities.

The scholarship aims to support New Zealand’s students studying space-related activities and will give New Zealand’s future innovators, entrepreneurs and scientists a head-start in their careers by enabling them to develop technical skills at a world-leading space agency.  The internship will give students access to international professional networks and develop their understanding of the global space economy. 

The scholarships will cover costs associated with the internship including travel, living costs and NASA’s administrative fees

The application process is two-phased. Candidates must first be selected by the New Zealand Space Agency. Following selection by MBIE, New Zealand finalists will be recommended to NASA.  NASA will then choose their finalists from the broader pool of 12 other countries.

Applications will be open from mid-September and close in mid-October. 

Students applying have to meet various requirements.
