Summer Internships

Most student internships at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies are managed through the New York City Research Initiative (NYCRI). Teams of high school and undergraduate students and faculty work alongside graduate students and the lead scientists of NASA-funded research projects at universities in the New York City metropolitan region or at NASA/GISS under the mentorship of a GISS scientist. Summer enrichment experiences include content and research seminars, team oral research reports, visits to various research laboratories and informal education institutions, participation in local and national research summits and a final research summit with participants from other government agencies, such as the National Science Foundation, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the United States Department of Education and the United States Department of Defense.
