Dear sir, I'm writing to inquire whether NASA can employ foreign peoples like me or not. Actually I'm a Japanese graduate student, and naturally have neither American citizenship nor Social security number. So, "quick apply" rejected me. Do you require all applicants to have social security number for a confirmation of US citizenship? Are there no chance for foreigners like me to work for NASA? I love America and NASA. I hope NASA gives me a chance. sincerely yours,
Other than under extremely rare exceptions, you must be a U.S. citizen in order to work for NASA as a civil service employee. If you are not a U.S. citizen, you may wish to consider opportunities with one of our International Space Partners. Search these links for additional information.
