2017 NASA Planetary Science Summer School Applications Open

NASA is accepting applications from science and engineering post-docs, recent PhDs, and doctoral students for its 29th Annual Planetary Science Summer School, which will be held July 24-28, 2017 at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.  

During the program and pre-session webinars, student teams will carry out the equivalent of an early mission concept study, prepare a proposal authorization review presentation, present it to a review board, and receive feedback.  By the end of the session, students will have a clearer understanding of the life cycle of a space mission; relationships between mission design, cost, and schedule; and the trade-offs necessary to stay within cost and schedule while preserving the quality of science

Applications are due April 3, 2016. Partial financial support is available for a limited number of individuals. Further information is available at http://pscischool.jpl.nasa.gov.
