The LARSS Program is one of NASA’s most prestigious and successful student research programs, having recently ranked among the top ten best internships in the nation. Designed to bridge the gap between academic concepts and real-world experience, LARSS creates opportunities for students to come to NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) in Hampton, Virginia to conduct robust research and work on exciting projects while working side-by-side with NASA’s finest scientists and engineers.
LARSS is a year-round (3 sessions) paid, research internship program for undergraduate and graduate students that provides real research experiences in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) as well as in business, communication, marketing, and other areas that support NASA’s mission. Most majors accepted! The LARSS program hosts over 200 interns annually.
The website is http://www.nianet.org/larss <http://www.nianet.org/larss> . As indicated, the program is mostly STEM based with opportunities for special project areas in non-STEM disciplines as well.
We invite all eligible students to apply and encourage female students, under-represented minorities, college students with disabilities, military veterans, first-generation college students, and students from economically-disadvantaged backgrounds to apply.
Eligibility requirements include:
