The NASA Airborne Science Program invites highly motivated advanced undergraduates to apply for participation in the 11th annual NASA Student Airborne Research Program (SARP 2019). Students will work in multi-disciplinary teams to study surface, atmospheric, and oceanographic processes. Participants will fly onboard the NASA DC-8 and assist in the operation of instruments to sample and measure atmospheric gases and to image land and water surfaces in multiple spectral bands. Along with airborne data collection, students will participate in taking measurements at field sites. Each student will complete an individual research project from the data collected. Outstanding faculty and staff for this program will be drawn from several universities and NASA centers, as well as from NASA flight operations and engineering personnel. The eight-week program begins June 16, 2019 and concludes August 9, 2019. Application Deadline: January 30, 2019

SARP participants will receive a $5,000 stipend, a travel allowance, and free housing and local transportation during the 8-week program. Applicants must be US citizens.
