An informal on-line conversation will be held Thursday, March 25 4:00 - 4:45 PM on behalf of undergrads with interests in space science and engineering. The event is sponsored by the NASA DRIVE Center for Geospace Storms and involves several universities including Virginia Tech. A panel of young researchers will describe their paths into this field and offer insights on how today's undergrad can get involved.

See 'Read More' for information on how to attend. There is an optional registration that will connect you to receive emails about student opportunities in this field.
The 2021 Incoherent Scatter (IS) Radar Summer School will be held virtually July 19-24. The school provides students with experience in designing and running experiments on IS radars. These large and powerful facilities are used to study the ionosphere and space weather by providing critical measurements of ionospheric plasma and the upper atmosphere. IS radars operate in the equatorial, mid-latitude, and high-latitude regions. The IS Radar summer school is suitable for graduate and advanced undergraduate students and attendance is limited. Apply using the summer school web site: https://amisr.com/school(external link)
The deadline for application submission is extended to March 12, 2021.

The Institute for Broadening Participation (IBP) designs and implements strategies to increase access to STEM education, funding, and careers, with special emphasis on diverse underrepresented groups. Towards this end, the IBP has created the website www.PathwaysToScience.org(external link) as a resource to help students find paid summer research programs and fully funded STEM graduate programs. The website currently lists
· 630 paid summer research programs for undergrads and grad students, including opportunities funded by NSF, NASA, NOAA, etc.
· 138 fully funded STEM masters programs
· 160 fully funded STEM PhD programs
The website includes a search tool to help identify opportunities.
The Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) Undergraduate STEM Research Scholarship Program provides awards of up to $8,500 to rising juniors and seniors who are enrolled full-time in a program of study in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) and have a specific faculty-mentored research project that has NASA or aerospace relevance. Application deadline is January 29, 2021. See https://vsgc.odu.edu/undergraduatescholarships/(external link)

The VSGC Graduate Research STEM Fellowship Program provides fellowships of $6,000 in add-on support to graduate students to supplement and enhance basic research support. Applicants must be Student at NASA enrolled full-time in a program of study in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) and have a specific faculty-mentored research project that has NASA or aerospace relevance. Application deadline is January 29, 2021. See https://vsgc.odu.edu/graduatefellowships/(external link)
