The Planetary Geology and Geophysics Undergraduate Research Program pairs qualified undergraduate students with NASA-funded investigators at research locations across the U.S. for eight weeks during the summer. Students will spend the summer at the NASA scientist’s home institution. Selected students receive compensation for housing and travel, and a cost-of-living stipend.
Undergraduate students majoring in geology or related sciences are eligible to apply. Students graduating in 2010 who have not yet started graduate school are also eligible. Preference is given to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
Students are selected on the basis of their academic record, personal statement and academic letters of reference. The selection committee also considers the skill sets requested by the NASA mentor and how well these match the applicants’ abilities.
Applications are due Feb. 12, 2010.
