NASA Pathways Intern Program

What is the Pathways Intern Program?

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 students rotate into a different functional area at JSC, which allows them to try out different career paths while in school and decide what they want to do after graduation. Each time a student comes for a work tour they’re assigned a mentor who works side-by-side with them to assign a meaningful project and provide the tools/knowledge to complete it.

·         Have a passion for space and our mission

·         Are self-motivated
