The Space Life Sciences Training Program (SLSTP) is seeking student applications for the 2016 summer program, which will run from June 13 to August 19, 2016 at NASA Ames Research Center. The Space Life Sciences Training Program (SLSTP) provides undergraduate students entering their junior or senior years with professional experience in space life science disciplines. The primary goal of the program is to train the next generation of scientists and engineers, enabling NASA to meet future research and development challenges in the space life sciences.
"NASA is awarding a total of approximately $11.25 million to universities in 15 states to conduct basic research and technology development in areas critical to the agency's mission. NASA's Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) program is awarding up to $750,000 to colleges and universities for research and development in areas, such as remote sensing, nanotechnology, astrophysics and aeronautics, all of which are applicable to NASA's work in Earth science, aeronautics, and human and robotic deep space exploration. The award covers a three-year period. Results from the research will be provided to NASA for possible inclusion in its programs."
"Nineteen undergraduate student teams from 18 universities around the nation will participate in NASA's new microgravity activity called Micro-g Neutral Buoyancy Experiment Design Teams (Micro-g NExT) this summer. Micro-g NExT challenges students to work in teams to design and build prototypes of tools to be used by astronauts during spacewalk training in the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL) located at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. The tools will be designed to address authentic, current space exploration problems."
