Opportunity Details

Non-U.S. interns (university undergraduate-level students) or fellows (university graduate-level students) selected to participate in the NASA I² Program will be part of a broad group of U.S. and foreign interns or fellows. This program will provide opportunities for interaction among the group in the laboratory and in more informal settings. Internship sessions are arranged in three sessions during the calendar year (spring, summer and fall).
