NASA History Program Office Student Internships
The History Program Office preserves NASA’s documentary record, stimulates the study of aerospace history, and communicates historical information within NASA and with the public. Student interns assist the History Program by managing our social media accounts; writing features for our website; reviewing the historical manuscripts that we produce; researching historical questions, and performing assorted other support tasks.
Although our internships are unpaid and housing is not provided, the experience gained from performing meaningful work at NASA Headquarters is invaluable. Interns write most of our social media posts. And, because the History Program is part of the Office of Communications, there are many other activities of which you may be a part. Recently our interns have helped host NASA Socials, and have assisted public affairs officers with astronaut appearances at Headquarters and elsewhere around the city.
