Internships for Students


    The Hawai‘i Space Grant Consortium maintains a listing of internship opportunities available to all qualified full-time undergraduate students enrolled in the University of Hawai‘i system.


The goal of the HSGC Internship Program is to facilitate the development of a high-technology workforce in Hawai‘i and to promote educational training opportunities between University of Hawai‘i students and high-technology enterprises in the State of Hawai‘i.

For Prospective Applicants

Applicants must be U.S. citizens and full-time undergraduate students enrolled in the University of Hawai‘i system (Manoa, Hilo, Maui, or a Community College campus). Please see specific requirements of the host company. The student will be sponsored by a mentor at the host company who is willing to guide the student for the duration of the award. Internship awards will be based on academic qualifications of the student (>3.0 cumulative GPA preferred), quality of the application letter in terms of proposed objectives, faculty letter of support, appropriateness of applicant resume for the intended project, and availability of an Internship position.

Successful candidates will be designated University of Hawai‘i Space Grant Interns. Interns are expected to work approximately fifteen hours a week on their projects. Financial support includes a stipend of $3000 for the first semester-long period of their project. Summer interns will receive a stipend and be expected to work 20 hours/week or full-time for a designated time period between Spring and Fall semesters depending on the internship award. Please read details for each opportunity.

Women, under-represented minorities (specifically native Hawaiians, other Pacific Islanders, Native Americans, African Americans, and Hispanics), and physically challenged students who have interest in space-related fields are particularly encouraged to apply.

Applicants must complete a formal application, and submit transcripts and a letter of support from a faculty member.
