STUDENT OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN NASA
Fellowship opportunities for interested and highly motivated students include experimental projects conducted in the Ames 7- by 10-Foot Wind Tunnel, full-scale helicopter or tilt rotor tests in the National Full-Scale Aerodynamics Complex (the world's largest wind tunnel), and in flight with resident U.S. Army UH-60A Black Hawk helicopters. Analytical research projects include new vertical lift aircraft assessment and analysis (manned and unmanned), comprehensive analysis of current and new helicopter and tilt rotor aircraft, as well as CFD modeling of rotary wing systems and airfoil aerodynamics. Many of these projects include collaboration with the Department of Defense (U.S. Army, DARPA) and the U.S. helicopter industry.
Some of the student design and internship opportunity announcements are listed below. To learn more about student opportunities at NASA, interested applicants should apply through the One Stop Shopping Initiative.
NASA One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI)
OSSI is a NASA-wide system for the recruitment, application, selection and career development of undergraduate and graduate students primarily in science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines. Opportunities for students in other disciplines are available. The NASA OSSI is a year-round program and has a variety of time frames available.
Students have the ability to search and apply for all types of NASA internship, fellowship, scholarship opportunities in one system. A single internship or fellowship application places students in the applicant pool for consideration by mentors for all NASA internships or fellowships.
NASA OSSI provides a flexible workforce solution for Sponsors while enabling students and faculty to contribute their specialized skills and grow their knowledge while at the same time gaining practical experience in their chosen field or career pathway.
