The JPL Summer Faculty Research Program provides opportunities for science, technology, mathematics and engineering (STEM) faculty to engage in research of mutual interest to the faculty member and a JPL researcher. Non-STEM faculty will be considered based on available opportunities.
The primary goals of the program are:
To be eligible to participate in the program, a potential fellow must hold a full time appointment at an accredited university or college in the US. Special requirements for foreign national faculty members may apply. Applications must include CV and a statement of research interests. Fellows are required to submit a research report and present their work at the end of the session.
JSFRP awards $13,500 fellowships for the 10-week session. A housing allowance for awardees who live beyond a 50-mile radius of JPL will be offered. Please note that stipend payments or salaries from other federal funding sources, including research grants and contracts, may not be accepted during the ten-week tenure of a JPL faculty research appointment.
Application Deadline: April 1
