NASA Guam Space Grant Internship

University of Guam students seeking teaching or research internships relevant to NASA’s goals in aeronautics and space research are invited to apply for the NASA Guam Space Grant Internship program for the Fañomnåkan (January – May) 2022 semester.

The program is geared toward the support and enhancement of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) as they pertain to NASA’s programs, including the study of the universe, evolution of life, our island’s connection to space, and the growth of innovations that enhance the general welfare of the community. The program encompasses a broad range of STEM fields, such as geology, biology, oceanography, astronomy, computer science, medicine, and more.

Undergraduate students have the option to pursue one of two paths:

  1. Teaching internship: Teaching interns will have the opportunity to partner with a University of Guam professor and provide instructional support.
  2. Research internship: Research interns will work on original academic projects as they pertain to NASA’s broad range of focus areas..

Details for a separate fellowship program geared toward UOG graduate students will be announced later this year.

Eligibility and selection

  • U.S. citizen
  • Full-time undergraduate student with a declared STEM-related major
  • Must have a mentor (UOG faculty, senior researcher, or other qualified personnel) to offer guidance through the duration of the program.

Internships will be awarded based on a proposed project’s quality, feasibility, and relevance to NASA’s goals as well as the applicant’s academic aptitude. Women, underrepresented minorities, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.


Financial support for undergraduates may include a one-semester stipend of $4,000, renewable for a second semester for a total of $8,000 per academic year. A travel and supply budget of $500 per semester will be available for those pursuing the research internship path as funds allow.
