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!

​Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI)

​​The Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) program encourages undergraduate students and recent graduates to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing research experiences at the Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories. Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 17 participating DOE laboratories/facilities. They perform research, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers, on projects supporting the DOE mission.​  The deadline to apply for Fall 2020 ​is:  ​May 28, 2020 Eligibility requirements and application information about SULI can be found:  here

​GRID Alternatives

GRID is always looking for volunteers.  For students who want to learn more, visit the​ website and sign up online here.  GRID typically seek interns on a quarterly basis.  Depending on the time of year and project needs/staff capacity, GRID may host interns in solar design, outreach, marketing/communications, operations/admin, construction, and/or workforce & volunteerism.  Paid/unpaid internship positions are posted on GRID's career page here

Internship Opportunities available Fall 2020

​​​​​NASA Internships

​​​​IMPORTANT:  Apply to the term you plan on interning. Fall 2020 applications will reopen July 6, 2020.   information can be found here ​​

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.

NASA Community College Aerospace Sch​olars (N​CAS) Program

​NCAS gives community college STEM students an authentic NASA experience and encourages them to finish a 2-year degree or transfer to a 4-year university to pursue a NASA-related field or career.  Information about NASA NCAS can be found Here​

​NASA L'SPACE Academy (NASA Lucy Student Pipeline Accelerator and Competency Enabler)

The NASA L'SPACE Academy is a free, online, interactive program open to undergraduate STEM major students interested in pursuing a career with NASA or other Space organizations. 

​L'SPACE consists of two Academies - the Mission Concept Academy, and the NASA Proposal Writing and Evaluation Experience Academy. Students may participate in one Academy per semester. Each 12-week Academy is designed to provide unique, hands-on learning and insight into the dynamic world of the Space Industry. Students can expect to learn NASA mission procedures and protocols from industry professionals as they collaborate with fellow team members to complete mission-related team-projects.

Requirements for participation include access to a computer with internet and headset capabilities, and time to devote an additional 4-hours per week beyond the online session requirements towards team projects.​  Apply Here
