Space Grant Summer Research – Apply now!

March 17, 2022 | DiRAC NEWS

Washington state’s NASA Space Grant program at the UW invites you, as a faculty member conducting research in a STEM area, to participate our 2022 Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP).  The application period for students closes on Friday, April 8, 2022.

SURP is an excellent way to extend your summer funding through WA Space Grant’s contribution of half of the selected student’s award payment.  Faculty contribution per student is $2,750 full-time and $1,375 part-time.

If you already have a student working with you, we encourage you to apply for the program along with that student.  If you are looking for new students, you can apply and we will help to match you with a qualified undergraduate.

Through SURP, WA Space Grant seeks to increase research opportunities for undergraduates on NASA-related STEM projects, and we particularly welcome applications from students with traditionally marginalized genders and from underrepresented minoritized communities.  UW undergraduate students in good academic standing who are interested in research in science, technology, engineering or mathematics fields are eligible to apply. Applicants must be U.S. citizens.

The student application is also open through April 8, 2022.  Information for students can be found at:
