Deadline: LaSSO applications due
Jun 25 @ 11:59 pm

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 9.5-month award for $4500 with a requirement of at least $3500 going directly to the student.

The intent of the LaSSO program is to supplement and enhance the undergraduate academic curriculum by providing the science/engineering student with a hands-on, mentored research experience relevant to space, earth, coastal, and/or marine sciences. A LaSSO project will be a joint effort between a faculty researcher, who serves as mentor and project Principal Investigator, and an undergraduate researcher. Proposals must clearly identify the Mission Directorate/NASA Center/Research Division at NASA and the Louisiana Sea Grant’s strategic plan research priority/NOAA Research Division being addressed by this project. Projects focused exclusively on NASA Research not of relevance to Louisiana Sea Grant should be submitted to the LaSPACE LURA program.
