Once you have enrolled as a student at an accredited college or university, there are many educational programs that can bring you to JPL. Visit our Internship/Fellowship and Minority Initiatives pages to see all of our student educational opportunities.
JPL also has part-time paid jobs for students enrolled at an accredited college or university within 50 miles of JPL. Visit the Career Launch Web site to learn more about these positions.
JPL also has a summer program for high school students: SpaceSHIP, or Space Summer High School Internship Program. This program gives about 20 students the opportunity to spend six weeks at JPL working on a space-related project. The program accepts applications from students who live within 50 miles of JPL and who will be 16 years of age or older when the program starts. Information about this program can be found at http://jplspaceship.jpl.nasa.gov/index.cfm .
May I Come to JPL and Work as a Volunteer to Gain Experience?
JPL does not allow members of the public to work at the laboratory as volunteers -- that is, without pay.
