NASA LPI Summer Internship Program 2017

Applications are now open for the NASA LPI Summer Internship Program in Planetary Science.

The Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) is a scientific research institute dedicated to study of the solar system, its formation, evolution, and current state. The institute is part of the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) and is supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Each year, LPI hosts a NASA LPI Summer Internship Program providing undergraduates an opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research in the planetary sciences.

Interns work one-on-one with scientists at the LPI or at the NASA Johnson Space Center to complete research projects of current interest. The NASA LPI Summer Internship Program allows participants to experience a real research environment, to learn from leading planetary scientists, and to preview careers in research.
