Undergraduate Summer Internship
Howard University NASA University Research Center supports undergraduate and graduate students during each summer for research experience in NASA related science at our Beltsville Research Campus. This ten week summer program pairs interns with mentors from Howard University’s faculty and offers the opportunity to work with scientists from NASA, NOAA and other agencies. Students may be placed in the nearby NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center.
The Howard University NASA University Summer Internship Program provides the opportunity for students to participate in:
- NASA team work
- Experiential learning
- Careful Mentorship
Interns participate in research, experimental design and data acquisition with state of- the-art instruments. Interns conduct analysis of data sets and numerical modeling. Interns will also write research reports and presenting findings at a research symposium. Examples of research projects include impacts of air pollution on ecosystems, lidar-based wind and water vapor remote sensing, cloud condensation characteristics of aerosols, and gas and aerosol transport in the atmospheric boundary layer, weather forecasting.
