Pathways Intern | NASA (INT:UNR)



At the Johnson Space Center, students will have the opportunity to contribute to JSC’s continued work of building a new NASA vehicle to enable human deep space exploration, work on the operation and development of the International Space Station in cooperation with internal partners, and work with industry to help foster the commercial space sector. The Pathways Intern Program follows a cooperative education model where current undergraduate and graduate students gain valuable work experience on an alternating school/work basis and serves as a pipeline for future full-time employees. Interns receive the same benefits as full-time employees such as bi-weekly pay, insurance, and paid time-off. Each work tour will rotate into a different functional area at JSC, which allows students to try out different career paths while they are still in school and decide what they want to do after graduation. Each time a student comes for a work tour, they will be assigned a mentor who will work side-by-side with the student to assign the student a meaningful project and provide the tools/knowledge to complete it.
