The Langley Aerospace Research Student Scholars (LARSS) Program
<http://www.nianet.org/larss> is a paid, unique, highly competitive, year
round (3 sessions -- fall, spring, and summer) research internship program
for undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). For 25 years, the LARSS program and the NASA Langley Research Center have helped preserve U.S. leadership in engineering and science by providing exceptional students the opportunity to work with Langley researchers on some of the Nation’s most important, difficult, and challenging problems that require multi-disciplinary and collaborative solutions. LARSS is also a nationally ranked internship program. In 2011, the staff of Vault-Career Intelligence reviewed over 800 national internships and named LARSS one of its top 10 best internship programs. Eligibility requirements include U.S. citizenship; full-time student status at an accredited U.S. college or university; classification as a rising undergraduate junior or senior, or graduate student (master’s or doctoral level) by the start of the summer session; and a cumulative 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale.
The 10-week summer session begins on Monday, June 4, and ends Friday, August
10, 2012. Students participate in a variety of tours, lectures, and social
events designed to achieve the “outcomes” established for the LARSS program.
The summer session culminates with students presenting the results of their
research in a variety of forums to various audiences.
