What is the Pathways Intern Program?

The NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) Pathways Intern Program (formerly known as the co-op program) follows a cooperative education model where current undergraduate and graduate students gain valuable work experience on an alternating school/work basis, and serves as a pipeline for future full-time employees. Interns will rotate into a different functional area at JSC, allowing individuals to try out different career paths while attending school and preparing for a potential NASA career after graduation. Interns are assigned a mentor for each rotation. Mentors will work side-by-side with Interns to ensure a meaningful experience. Additionally, Interns are able to receive the same benefits as full-time employees such as bi-weekly pay, insurance, and paid time-off.
