NASA offers a robust internship experience and is an opportunity for all STEM majors, not just aerospace. Space exploration takes a melting pot of several careers/majors, including: biology, physics, environmental science, computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and of course aerospace engineering.
National Science Foundation
The National Science Foundation is a US Government agency that supports the research and education of STEM within North America. They offer Research Experience for Undergrads (REU). REU sites range from prestigious universities, famous labs, and other institutes, which act as research internships. There are REUs available for a wide variety of majors, including: astronomical sciences, chemistry, biology, computer science, cyberinfrastructure, physics, math, engineering, social science, behavioral science and economics.
Utilize CTRL+F when searching the REU database so that you can find keywords that interest you (e.g. UCLA, machine learning, genetics, astrophysics, etc.). Some of these REUs are outside of California and pay for your travel and living expenses as well as provide a stipend payment. Take the time to apply to as many as you can!
