The Langley Aerospace Research Summer Scholars (LARSS) Program is one of NASA's most successful student programs, for 25 years providing mentored, paid, research internships to undergraduate and graduate students in the fields of Science, Technoloy, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) as well as in Business, Communication, Marketing, and other areas that support NASA's mission.

LARSS was recently recognized by Vault Career Intelligence as among the top ten best college internship programs in the United States in 2011.

NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC), founded in 1917, is the nation's first civilian aeronautical research facility and NASA's original field center. NASA Langley's Mission is to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery, and aeronautics through research and development of technology, scientific instruments, and exploration systems. LaRC is also designated as the NASA Center of Excellence for Structures and Materials.

NASA LaRC invites rising undergraduate juniors and seniors, and graduate students who are pursuing degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering (most fields, particularly aeronautical, electrical, chemical, and mechanical), Mathematics, materials science, atmospheric science and other aerospace-related fields, as well as other majors that lend support to NASA's mission in special project areas such as accounting, business, public administration, English, journalism, history, photography and media arts to apply for the LARSS program. Females and students from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.

The Langley Aerospace Research Summer Scholars (LARSS) Program is managed for NASA by the Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VGSC) under the auspices of the National Institute of Aerospace (NIA).
