Industry members are encouraged to place intern job postings, if available, onto the WSGC industrial website by the first of each year (50-word max job announcement text). This program could provide up to $2,500 per calendar year per student based upon a 1 to 1 match of student direct salary or wages. Students considered must be attending a WSGC member academic institution and working toward a degree. The company must be an industry member of the WSGC. Students should contact the companies directly for consideration. Students may post their biosketch on the WSGC website if they choose. A maximum of two students per company per calendar year are allowed. If a specific student is not proposed at the time of the proposal submittal, a detailed job description must be submitted and benefits to the hired student must be discussed.  Exceptions can be made if applications are limited. A WSGC Industry Program Committee (IPC) will make award recommendations to the WSGC Director. Specific instructions for "A" applications are:

    • Describe what is expected and how it will benefit the student intern, the company, and the state and national space activities.
