At JSC, you'll have the opportunity to contribute to our continued work of building a new NASA vehicle to enable human deep space exploration, work on the operation and development of the International Space Station in cooperation with our Internal Partners, and work with industry to help foster the commercial space sector.
Our Pathways Intern Program follows a cooperative education model where current undergraduate and graduate students gain valuable work experience on an alternating school/work basis, and serves as a pipeline for our future full-time employees. Interns receive the same benefits as full-time employees such as bi-weekly pay, insurance, and paid time-off.
Each work tour you will rotate into a different functional area at JSC, which allows you to try out different career paths while you are still in school and decide what you want to do after graduation. Each time you come for a work tour you'll be assigned a mentor who will work side-by-side with you to assign you a meaningful project and provide the tools/knowledge to complete it.
