2015 NASA Planetary Science Summer School Applications Open
NASA is accepting applications from science and engineering post-docs, recent PhDs, and doctoral students for its 27th Annual Planetary Science Summer School, which will be held in one single session in summer 2015 (August 10–14 only) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
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 tradeoffs necessary to stay within cost and schedule while preserving the quality of science.
Applications are due April 10, 2015. Partial financial support is available for a limited number of individuals. Further information is available at http://pscischool.jpl.nasa.gov.
