NASA-Related Internships, Fellowships, and Scholarships

An innovative solution to advance the United States’ policy initiatives for STEM Education and workforce development. The One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI) enables eligible students to access hundreds of internship and fellowship opportunities from all 10 NASA centers through a single portal (intern.nasa.gov) and apply for up to 15 opportunities with one single application through the Student On-Line Application for Recruiting (SOLAR) system.

In addition to the opportunities currently posted on SOLAR, AIHEC has funding under NASA’s TCUP program to support TCU student and faculty placements at the NASA Centers. AIHEC sponsored participants will be selected through SOLAR for two types of placements: team and individual. Possible team project themes include rocketry, environmental science, digital imagery, robotics, and adapting NASA science for education (a great project for pre-service teachers). Listen to our first Tribal College NASA Student Ambassador, Marie Kingbird Lowry, LLTC, speak about her experience: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yn6I12kkHjw

American Indian College Fund

The American Indian College Fund was established in 1989 to provide scholarships to American Indian students and to fund and create awareness about the community-based accredited tribal colleges and universities that offer students access to knowledge and skills alongside Native culture, language, and values.

The American Indian College Fund provides three types of scholarships: undergraduate tribal college scholarships; undergraduate non-tribal college and university scholarships; and graduate scholarships for students attending either a tribal college and university or non-tribal college and university.
