The NASA History Program Office is seeking undergraduate and graduate students for summer and fall 2014 internships.

The division also edits and publishes several books and monographs each year. It maintains a large number of websites on NASA history.

Strong research, writing and editing skills are essential. Experience with social media is a plus.
Intern projects are flexible. Typical projects include handling a variety of information requests, writing posts for the NASA history twitter and Facebook pages, editing historical manuscripts, doing research and writing biographical sketches, and identifying and captioning photos.
