Funding Assistance
The UA/NASA Space Grant Undergraduate Research Internship program works hard to engage the largest number of students possible. Each year we are able to extend the internship funding base to a larger group of undergraduates through much appreciated financial assistance provided by those of our mentors who are able to full-fund or split-fund their interns. Interns may work between 10 and 20 hrs/wk (9.50/hr plus 3.3% ERE). On average, they tend to work 13 hrs/wk. Thus, full-funding an intern for 30 weeks, at 13hrs/wk amounts to about 3,825 dollars while split-funding half the costs amounts to about 1,913 dollars. Please note that cost-share is not considered in either the ranking/selection of interns or in the process of matching those students to mentor projects.
Nomination
In the first step of the review process, student applicants are ranked and selected on merit. In the second step, top ranked students are matched with best fitting mentor proposals. If you already have a student identified for this proposed project - and that student has submitted an Internship application - you can nominate that student to be matched to this project. Do you wish to nominate a specific student?

Note: Any student nominated for split-funding must complete a student Internship Program application form.

If you have nominated a specific student and he or she does not get selected for an Internship, would you be willing to mentor another student?
