Seven aerospace students at the University of Colorado Boulder are taking off with distinguished NASA Pathways Internships.
Undergraduates Barbara De Figueiredo Vera, David McGraw, Sophia Orlandella, Shawn Patel, Aaditya Pore, Alexandra Putman, and Anthony Storm have each been selected for the program.
NASA Pathways offers a unique, in-depth paid internship that provides students the chance to spend two semesters and a summer at one of 11 NASA research centers across the United States. Applicants choose which center would like to intern at and as part of their assignments rotate across multiple job areas ranging from mission control, to safety and mission assurance, to astronaut training.
It gives students the opportunity to explore their interests and contribute to real-world flight operations across the space agency and aims to be a direct pipeline to full-time employment at NASA upon graduation.
