Space Grant NIFS Summer 2016 Pilot Process (Version 2.0)
The HQ Space Grant team is still working with the NIFS Director and Center NIFS Leads to finalize a placement process for all NASA Center Space Grant Funded interns. In the interim, for Summer 2016 placements, we will be enhancing the pilot process previously utilized. This version 2.0 of the pilot process will incorporate a phased approach designed to maximize mentor selections, facilitate earlier student offers, and increase the number of student placements from students you have pre-identified from your state for consideration.
As noted in the attachment, the application deadline for Summer 2016 is March 1, 2016. All student applications must go through the One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI) system for placement. Keep in mind that centers are able to go into the system before the close of the application to select students and begin making offers. So please encourage your students to apply as soon as possible.
