Calls for Applications to the 2018 NIHERST/NASA International Internship (NASA I2)

NASA International Internship Programme (NASA I²) 2018


Calls for Applications to the 2018 NIHERST/NASA International Internship (NASA I2).

The NASA I2 team at NIHERST is pleased to present the attached flyer for the 2018 NASA International Internship Program (NASA I2). This is the fifth cycle of NASA I2 with Trinidad and Tobago, the first of which was launched in 2014.

In the 2017 cycle, two (2) Trinidadian students were awarded the prestigious scholarship to participate in the Summer Internship from June 5th to August 11th, 2017, at the NASA Ames Research Centre in Mountain View, California. Alyssa Mike and Valmiki Ramroop, were both awarded the 2017 internship, following a rigorous screening process.

The 2018 Summer NASA I2 is tentatively scheduled to take place from June 5th to August 11th, 2018 and NIHERST wishes to award another student to attend this opportunity.

In order to provide NASA with the short-listed candidates by January, 2018, and facilitate a thorough local screening of candidates, the deadline for submission of applications is no later than December 31st, 2017. We therefore wish to request the distribution of the flyer to the students of your organisation's STEM programme/faculty, within your professional network, and/or any other professional forum where the flyer can be extended.

For additional information on this project, you may contact Ms. Darielle Rampersad, Project Assistant at 622-2181 ext. 1025 or email and for continued updates and access to the application form, please visit the NIHERST-NASA webpage via the following link:

Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to hearing your feedback and anticipate a successful 2018 NASA I2 cycle.
