NASA Internships

Wednesday, 12 October 2016 by

NASA offers an Agency-wide college internship program that provides a 10-week summer and 16-week fall and spring paid internship opportunity for students pursuing degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM); and for students of non-STEM majors that lend support to the NASA mission. During their internship students work at the NASA Glenn Research Center

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRF) is for currently open for applications. Current doctoral students who have approval of their dissertation topic and a formal dissertation committee are eligible. NIJ’s Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF) program supports doctoral students engaged in research that advances NIJ’s mission. The Graduate Research Fellowship in

Many years of effort and more than one thousand physicists have been focused on finding evidence of gravitational waves. Success was achieved on September 14, 2015 when gravitational waves were detected by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors located in Livingston, LA and Hanford, WA. The existence of gravitational waves is one of

A Call for Membership, The Answer:  For a Lifetime In 1977 the National Society of Black Physicists (NSBP) was founded to promote the professional well-being of black physicists within the scientific community and within society at large. Over the years, NSBP has sought to develop and support efforts to increase the opportunities afforded to our

The International Affairs Committee helps to establish contacts with colleagues and organizations across Africa, the Caribbean, and other regions worldwide. NSBP strives to support members both domestic or abroad. If you are interested in networking and supporting physicists of the African diaspora across the world, the International Affairs committee may be right for you. To
