As our name implies, JPL is a laboratory in the best sense of the word. We like doing the “impossible.” We start with ideas for scientific investigations, then turn them into groundbreaking missions.
Being an Intern at JPL puts you right in the action, working alongside the scientists and engineers who’ve helped make JPL the leading center for robotic exploration of the solar system. Internships at JPL provide a strong pathway to a career with JPL and NASA. Many JPLers entered our Universe as student interns and contribute to major discoveries at JPL today.
As part of every internship, students receive mentorship and are encouraged to apply for full-time roles upon graduation.
We are looking for current students enrolled in relevant disciplines who demonstrate academic excellence with a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA.
JPL offers internships through both Human Resources and the Education Office which require separate applications.
On this page, you can explore both sets of student opportunities.
