NASA 24th Annual Planetary Science Summer School for Post-Graduates/PhD Students (Apply by March 28)
(Apply by March 28; June 18-22 and July 16-20)
NASA is accepting applications from science and engineering post-docs, recent PhDs, and doctoral students for it’s 24th Annual Planetary Science Summer School, which will hold two separate sessions this summer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. During the program and pre-session webinars, student teams will carry out the equivalent of an early mission concept study, prepare a proposal authorization review presentation, present it to a review board, and receive feedback. By the end of the session, students will have a clearer understanding of the life cycle of a space mission; relationships between mission design, cost and schedule; and the tradeoffs necessary to stay within cost and schedule while preserving the quality of science. Partial financial support is available for a limited number of individuals. For more information, visit https://pscischool.jpl.nasa.gov/index.cfm.
