NASA Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) Internship Program

Since 2004, the John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) has offered summer projects to students interested in working on NASA missions or space-related research opportunities at APL.  Students participating in the NASA/APL Internship Program will work at APL, and will contribute to current and future missions during their assignments in the Space Department.  APL's Civilian Space Business Area makes critical contributions to the mission of its major sponsor, NASA, to meet the challenges of space science.  They conduct research and space exploration; develop and apply space science, engineering, and technology--including the production of one-of-a-kind spacecraft, instruments, and subsystem; and focus primarily on the science discipline of space physics and planetary science.  The Laboratory has built instruments and spacecraft to destinations such as Pluto, Mercury, the Sun and our moon.  Continuing these challenges, APL is supporting NASA as it implements initiatives to explore the reaches of our solar system.  The 399-acre campus, 20 miles north of Washington, DC, is home to 4,100 men and woman who work on more than 400 programs that project our homeland and advance the nation's vision in research and space science.
