FY 2015_Space Grant Internship Application Form

The University of Arizona/NASA Space Grant
Undergraduate Research Internship Program
Intern Application 2015-2016

Application Deadline: July 6, 2015

The University of Arizona/NASA Space Grant undergraduate research internship program is intended to provide a paid research-work experience for undergraduate students that can also help develop professional/career interests or aid in developing an understanding of scientific work. The program is specifically not limited to science and engineering students, although US citizenship is required. A few opportunities involve researching and writing about science history or national policies. The internship program seeks to provide research opportunities for science and engineering students, as well as for those students whose career plans will ultimately take them in other directions. Applications are especially encouraged from members of under-represented minority groups and from women. You must have at least Sophomore standing in the Fall semester at either the University of Arizona or Pima Community College in order to apply.

Tracking Agreement

A key measure of UA/NASA Space Grant Undergraduate Research Internship Program success is made through tracking the accomplishments and whereabouts of program participants. As a federal grant program, continued support and funding requires documentation of program accomplishments; tracking results must be provided to NASA and ultimately to Congress. To accomplish this, to apply for an Internship you must agree to the following:

If selected for UA/NASA Space Grant Undergraduate Research Internship, I agree to keep program managers apprised on my current academic accomplishments and personal whereabouts including my current contact information. In addition, during the internship I agree to complete program evaluation forms in a timely manner, and complete subsequent (online) program tracking forms at least one time per year starting at the end of my internship, until such time as I leave UA, complete my current UA/Pima academic degree, and can document the "next step" in my academic or professional activities (i.e., enter graduate school or the workforce).
