NASA Space Life Sciences Training Program Opportunities Now Available for Summer of 2019

The Space Life Sciences Training Program (SLSTP) is seeking student applications for the 2019 summer program. The program will run from June 10 to August 16, 2019 at NASA Ames Research Center. 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. Please note that in addition to the research project, the SLSTP includes a group project, and some project based training. These are mandatory activities and are estimated to be ~20% of all SLSTP students’ effort.  

Students who are interested may apply through the SLSTPapp website. Prospective applicants must create a student account on the SLSTPapp website.

The summer application window opened on December 11, 2018, and closes February 4, 2019, 5:00 pm Pacific Time.

Selections will be completed by early March, 2019. While preparing your application you will be asked to provide a narrative statement detailing your relevant experience and why you would like to work on each of the specific projects you select.
