Post Never heard of this...but need HELP   Posted on: Mon Apr 27, 2015 9:46 pm
My son applied for an Internship at NASA and had a call today saying that they do want him....great news...BUT
Funding is an issue and they are working on it, but they asked if he could obtain outside resources to help with the finanial costs.
They have had interns in the past that did this.
He only has three weeks to the start of the program...in Maryland

Here is what little I know...the total cost of his internship is $8,000
which includes his stipend and related housing and transpertation costs.

He called me with this information only 90 mins ago and the first thought was to take a reduction in the stipend.

But I am courious if anyone else has run into this situation or a like one in the past.
He is a Physics major in the Philadelphia area and is just finishing his sophmore year so the experience would be fantastic if we can figure out a way.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be very helpful.
