One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI) for NASA Internship/Fellowship Opportunities

One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI) for NASA Internship/Fellowship Opportunities

The NASA Office of Education, Higher Education Program, solicits proposals in response to the One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI) for NASA Internship/Fellowship Opportunities: (1) Business Management and (2) Broker-Facilitator Corps announcements. The selected proposers will support a NASA-wide integrated application, selection and placement system for student engagement in STEM research, aerospace education and the space exploration workforce pipeline. Students will visit one website to submit one application for all NASA internship/fellowship opportunities.

The selected Business Management organization will provide programmatic management for the OSSI system and work in partnership with the other four strategic partners (OSSI System Administrator, OSSI Broker-Facilitator Corps, NASA Education, and NASA Office of Human Capital Management). NASA Office of Education provides oversight for the OSSI system.

Broker-Facilitator Corps proposers must historically serve as an advocate for one of the following institution types: Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI), Predominately White Institutions (PWI), Predominately Black Institutions (PBI), including Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), or Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCU). A single organization for each institution type will be selected as a member of the Corps and serve as a culturally competent expert. The Corps will focus on designing and implementing recruitment, retention, and career development strategies that broaden the diversity of institution types and number of high performing participants in NASA's internship and fellowship application pool.

The two solicitations may be accessed through the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES).

You can also apply for the NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NESSF) Program.
