NASA Headquarters Policy on Pathways Internship Program

Purpose:

The Pathways Intern Employment Program (IEP) is designed to provide students enrolled in a wide variety of educational institutions, from high school to graduate level, with opportunities to work at NASA and explore Federal careers while still in school and while getting paid for the work performed.  Students who successfully complete the program may be eligible for conversion to a term or permanent appointment once all Program requirements are completed. 

Requirements:

All Interns must sign a Pathways Intern Participant Agreement which outlines the requirements of the program.  Failure to meet program requirements may result in removal from the program.  The agreement must include:

  • Description of duties
  • Work schedule
  • Length of appointment and termination date
  • Mentorship opportunities
  • Training requirements
  • Performance evaluation
  • Requirements for continuation in and successful completion of program
  • Minimum requirements for non-competitive conversion to term or permanent employment

Verification:

An Intern must show proof that he/she is maintaining a GPA of at least 2.9 by providing Headquarters with official transcripts after completing each semester or quarter of study.

Program Requirements:

An Intern must be able to complete 640 hours of work experience before completing the requirements for their degree.  320 hours may be waived if the Intern completes career-related work experience under an IEP appointment in which the intern has demonstrated high potential by outstanding academic achievement and exceptional job performance.
