NASA Undergraduate Program Accepting Applications
Applications for NASA's Undergraduate Student Research Program are being accepted through March 6 for the 15-week fall 2009 session.
USRP internships offer students the opportunity to work with scientists and engineers at NASA centers, laboratories and test facilities, including the John C. Stennis Space Center near Bay St. Louis. Applicants must be United States citizens enrolled in an American college as sophomores, juniors or seniors with a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and majors or course work concentrations in engineering, mathematics, computer science or physical or life sciences.
"NASA plays an important role in motivating young people to pursue science, technology, engineering and math fields," said Joy Smith, program manager. "This highly competitive project has selected some of the best and brightest young minds to contribute to the work of our engineering, physical sciences, earth, space and computer science labs."
