We have just received word that NASA has decided to extend until March 16, 2012 the application period for all summer internship applications processed through their SOLAR website. The extension includes summer internship opportunities for nearly all of the NASA centers and programs. This gives all of you procrastinators out there (you know who you are!) more than an additional month to complete applications. Just remember that the NASA mentors will begin to select students beginning Feb 2. Applications completed by the beginning of February will be a part of that first round of selections. NASA has positions for students interested in or studying various areas in science, technology, engineering, math, business, education, and many other topics.

To apply for a NASA internship, head to the SOLAR website at https://intern.nasa.gov/solar/web/public/main/

Internship application deadlines for programs not included in the SOLAR project (such as LARSS, NASA History, and the NASA Academies) vary by program but many end by February 2, 2012. Don't delay!
