The Louisiana Space & Sea Grant Opportunities for Undergraduate Research Program

The Louisiana Space & Sea Grant Opportunities (LaSSO) for Undergraduate Research Program is directed at science and engineering students who are working on projects in research areas deemed a priority by both NASA and NOAA. This is a new project developed in collaboration between the Louisiana Space Grant and Louisiana Sea Grant programs. Likely areas of research focus would include earth science, coastal studies, remote sensing, and similar topics that are relevant to the NASA Earth Science and NOAA missions. It is up to the proposers to provide evidence that the proposed work is of interest to both Agencies. This is a 9-month award for $4000 with a requirement of at least $3000 going directly to the student. The proposal due date is  Friday, June 18, 2021. more info on the LaSSO for Undergraduate Research Program
