All Florida students interested in internships at NASA centers for the summer of 2023 have to apply through the NASA Internships and Fellowships website  (

The NASA centers will make the selection of students and will request FSGC to pay the stipends for some of the Florida students that are selected for the internship. FSGC will support up to 5  Florida students as interns at NASA centers during summer of 2023. All students have to be US citizens and enrolled in a FSGC affiliated  Florida university or College.

Please note that FSGC will not support interns during the Fall and Spring semesters
