Undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a STEM degree


Coronavirus Update – JPL is offering remote internship opportunities that are telework-compatible while all but essential employees are working remotely due to COVID-19. Applications for future opportunities are also welcome and encouraged.

Maximizing Student Potential in STEM, or MSP, offers part-time and full-time internship opportunities at JPL to underrepresented students pursuing undergraduate or graduate degrees in STEM.

As part of their internships, students are partnered with JPL scientists or engineers, who serve as the students' mentors. Students complete designated projects outlined by their mentors, gaining educational experience in their fields of study while also contributing to NASA and JPL missions and science. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in a number of enrichment activities, including lectures and career advisement.
