*Apply Now for Summer 2014 NASA Internships for Students with Disabilities

NASA is looking to increase the number of students with disabilities
pursuing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers through
our internship programs. NASA has a two-percent hiring goal for employment
of people with disabilities and internships are a good way to get
experience. Students can apply for summer 2014 internships right this very
minute! The deadline for submitting applications is Friday, March 14, 2014,
and we will begin extending offers to students as early as Monday, February
3, 2014. We encourage you to apply early because the best opportunities are
likely to be filled early. Plus, your likelihood of being selected
decreases the longer you wait. You can register for an account anytime at
the One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI): NASA Internships, Fellowships, and
Scholarships (NIFS) at http://intern.nasa.gov/. However, students will not
be able to see Summer 2014 opportunities until November 1. Summer 2014
internships run from early June until early August for college students and
from late June until early August for high school students. All student
interns get paid. For example, last Summer, at Goddard college students
received a stipend of $6000 and high school students $1800. As an intern,
you are responsible for your own housing. NASA internships for college and
high school students are also offered during Spring, Fall and Year Long
Sessions through the OSSI website. NASA has internships for high school
students and for rising freshmen through doctoral students in STEM fields.
A rising freshman is a high school student who has been accepted to an
accredited institution of higher learning, i.e., a college or university,
at the time of the internship. Applicants must be U.S. citizens, with a
minimum GPA of 3.0 for college and 3.0 for high school; however, applicants
must understand that the competition for internships is keen. High school
students must be at least sixteen years old at the time the internship
begins. Internships are available at all NASA centers nationwide. Students
can submit a completed application whether they apply to an opportunity or
not. However, applying to opportunities has the advantage of allowing
applicants to be considered by mentors who work in disciplines of interest
and at a particular center. Applicants may apply to as many as fifteen
opportunities. For example, an opportunity having to do with the Solar
Dynamics Observatory (SDO) will be at the Goddard Space Flight Center in
Maryland because SDO is located there. Not applying to an opportunity means
that prospective interns will be hoping that a mentor happens to read their
applications rather than directing their applications to mentors in fields
and at centers of interest. Students who are selected for summer
internships will receive an offer letter by E-mail sometime after February
3, 2014. They will then have five days to either accept or reject the offer
through their OSSI: NIFS account. The offer will automatically expire after
five days if no action is taken. Please feel free to contact me for more
information or help with applying. Kenneth A. Silberman, Esq. U.S. Supreme
