Virginia Space Grant Consortium STEM Internships

Langley Aerospace Research Summer Scholars (LARSS) Program

Application deadline is February 1st.

A paid, unique, highly competitive, year round (3 sessions -- fall, spring, and summer) research internship program for undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

For 25 years, the LARSS program and the NASA Langley Research Center have helped preserve U.S. leadership in engineering and science by providing exceptional students the opportunity to work with Langley researchers on some of the Nation's most important, difficult, and challenging problems that require multi-disciplinary and collaborative solutions. LARSS is also a nationally ranked internship program. In 2011, the staff of Vault-Career Intelligence reviewed over 800 national internships and named LARSS one of its top 10 best internship programs. Eligibility requirements include U.S. citizenship; full-time student status at an accredited U.S. college or university; classification as a rising undergraduate junior or senior, or graduate student (master's or doctoral level) by the start of the summer session; and a cumulative 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale.

The 10-week summer session begins on Monday, June 4, and ends Friday, August 10, 2012. Students participate in a variety of tours, lectures, and social events designed to achieve the "outcomes" established for the LARSS program. The summer session culminates with students presenting the results of their research in a variety of forums to various audiences.

Old Dominion University's Engineering Early Advantage Program (EEAP)
Funded by the Virginia Space Grant Consortium, and sponsored by the Old Dominion's Career Management Center, EEAP was created to give female students early exposure to the university and provide them with a unique engineering experience. EEAP is part of ODU's Womengineers initiative, an ongoing effort to address the lack of women in engineering through education, recruitment and retention of female students from elementary school through college. This successful ongoing program  has provided over 50 young women with a “head start” including hands-on engineering experiences, networking and mentoring opportunities with faculty, and the opportunity to bond with other female engineering students.
