2024 NASA internship opportunity

Are you studying science, technology, engineering or mathematics at a master’s or doctoral level? The New Zealand Space Agency is seeking stellar graduate students studying engineering, science or computer science for internships at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and NASA’s Ames Research Center in the USA!

Applications for the 2024 New Zealand Space Scholarship programme are open for five weeks from Friday 8 September 2023. Students must apply via the New Zealand Space Agency.

Successful applicants will undertake 10–12-week internships at NASA JPL or NASA Ames in 2024 where they will work on space-related projects guided by NASA mentors, gaining hands-on experience in their fields of study and access to NASA’s best and most advanced research facilities.

Each internship comes with a New Zealand Space Scholarship which will cover return airfares to the United States and accommodation costs, plus an allowance for living expenses.
