PLANETARY GEOLOGY & GEOPHYSICS UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH PROGRAM (PGGURP)

Short Description:

The Planetary Geology and Geophysics Undergraduate Research Program (PGGURP) pairs PGG-funded PIs with qualified undergraduates for 8 weeks during the summer. PGGURP covers the cost of intern travel to and from your institution; room and board; and up to $1000 to help an intern present the results of their research at a national conference.
 
PGGURP mentors are responsible for helping the intern find local housing. Interns are required to submit a 2-page LPSC-style abstract to me at the end of the summer; you are expected to at least proof-read this abstract prior to its submission.
 
To request a PGGURP intern, please email Tracy Gregg 
(tgregg@buffalo.edu) with the following information by Friday, February 8 (same contact for questions).
 
1) A brief description of the project you have in mind
2) A list of the essential skills your intern must have to work on this project (e.g., petrology, GIS, a year of calculus, computer programming in a specific language).
3) A list of the desired skills your intern should have to work on this project (skills that you'd like the intern to have, but aren't required).
