2016 Annual Planetary Science Summer School Applications Open

Status Report From: Planetary Exploration Newsletter
Posted: Monday, April 4, 2016

NASA is accepting applications from science and engineering post-docs, recent PhDs, and doctoral students for its 28th Annual Planetary Science Summer School, which will be held July 25-29, 2016 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 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 tradeoffs necessary to stay within cost and schedule while preserving the quality of science.

Applications are due April 6, 2016. Partial financial support is available for a limited number of individuals. Further information is available at: http://pscischool.jpl.nasa.gov
