NASA’s Summer Undergraduate Program for Planetary Research

The Summer Undergraduate Program for Planetary Research (SUPPR) is an eight-week summer internship providing undergraduates majoring in geology and related sciences with an opportunity to participate in NASA planetary geosciences research.

Students work under the direction of a NASA-sponsored planetary science investigator at various science institutions. The program is designed to help students gain educational experience in their fields of study while contributing to NASA missions and science.

College undergraduates who have not yet begun graduate studies and who are interested in learning about research in planetary geoscience are eligible. Previous participants of SUPPR (formerly PGGURP) are not eligible. Preference is given to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.

All online application information must be received at the LPI no later than January 31, 2020. Notification of selection will be made by March 13, 2020. Successful applicants should be prepared to make a decision regarding the offer to participate within two days of notification.
