AIHEC-NASA One Stop Shopping Initiative

The partnership between NASA’s One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI) and AIHEC will lead a series of student recruitment, retention, and development efforts at Tribal Colleges and Universities. OSSI is a broad initiative that supports both minority and majority institutions with the purpose of providing university students nationwide increased awareness of internship, fellowship, and scholarship opportunities offered by NASA Mission Directorates and Centers. OSSI enables eligible students to easily access and apply to opportunities at NASA, and to be reengaged throughout their academic careers. In collaboration with NASA are external stakeholders that help support the entry of students into the NASA workforce, including industry and academia.

To qualify, a student must meet the following qualifications:

  1. Be a U.S. citizen
  2. Be enrolled full time at an accredited university
  3. Have a 2.8 GPA

Interested students and faculty should begin the application process immediately by setting up an account and creating an interest profile on the Student On-Line Application for Recruiting (SOLAR) system on the NASA Office of Education OSSI LaunchPad website. For more information, please contact AIHEC’s NASA Program Coordinator.
