The Lunar and Planetary Institute invites undergraduates with at least 50 semester hours of credit to experience cutting-edge research in the lunar and planetary sciences. As a Summer Intern, you will work one-on-one with a scientist at the LPI or at the NASA Johnson Space Center on a research project of current interest in lunar and planetary science. Furthermore, you will participate in peer-reviewed research, learn from top-notch planetary scientists, and preview various careers in science.

The 10-week program runs from June 4, 2018, to August 9, 2018. Interns will receive a $5675 stipend plus $1000 U.S. travel stipend, or $1500 foreign travel reimbursement for foreign nationals.

The LPI is located near Johnson Space Center on the south side of Houston, Texas. On NASA’s behalf, the LPI provides leadership in the scientific community for research in lunar, planetary, and solar system sciences, and linkage with related terrestrial programs.

The deadline for applying for the 2018 program is January 5, 2018. For more information, including eligibility and selection criteria, areas of research, and an online application form, visit https://www.lpi.usra.edu/lpiintern/.
