2013

NAU/NASA SPACE GRANT UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH INTERNSHIP PROGRAM - Application deadline March 15, 2013
 
The NAU/NASA Space Grant program is currently accepting applications from students and their mentors for the 2013-2014 Undergraduate Research Internship Program (UGRIP) through March 15, 2013 (Friday before Spring Break).  As NASA’s intent is to foster the research experience, there are no a priori limitations on the research topic.  It is helpful, however, if some connection to NASA’s broad interests can be made.  To learn more about the program and/or how to apply online, please go to the following link -  http://www.spacegrant.nau.edu/ugri/index.html.
