NASA Ames Undergraduate Opportunity

January 25, 2017

Application Deadline:  February 20, 2017

The Space Life Sciences Training Program (SLSTP) is seeking student applications for the 2017 summer program. The program will run from June 12 to August 18, 2017 at NASA Ames Research Center. SLSTP provides undergraduate students entering their junior or senior years with professional experience in space life science disciplines. The primary goal of the program is to train the next generation of scientists and engineers, enabling NASA to meet future research and development challenges in the space life sciences. Please note that in addition to the research project, the SLSTP program includes a group project, and some project based training. These are mandatory activities and are estimated to be ~20% of all SLSTP students’ effort.  

Students who are interested may apply through the SLSTPapp website. Prospective applicants must create a student account on the SLSTPapp website.

The summer application window closes February 20, 2017, 1700 EST, but the SLSTP management team will begin reviewing applications starting February 1, 2017. Selections will be completed by early March, 2017. While preparing your application you will be asked to provide a narrative statement detailing your relevant experience and why you would like to work on each of the specific projects you select.
