NASA’s Planetary Geology and Geophysics Undergraduate Research Program
Through the Planetary Geology and Geophysics Undergraduate Research Program (PGGURP) qualified undergraduates are paired with NASA-funded investigators at research locations around the U.S. for eight weeks during the summer. PGGURP’s goals are to provide incentive and development of future planetary geoscientists, broaden the base of students who participate in planetary geoscience, introduce students interested in the traditional sciences to planetary science, and give potential planetary geoscientists a chance to explore the exciting field of planetary research.
The program consists of an eight-week summer internship, in which qualified students are matched with a NASA-funded planetary scientist. Care is taken to match the skills of the student with the needs of the NASA mentor.
The application deadline is February 21, 2018. For more information, including eligibility requirements, visit http://www.acsu.buffalo.edu/~tgregg/pggurp.html.
