JPL Graduate Fellowship


The JPL Graduate Fellowship (JPLGF) is a graduate fellowship project for U.S. citizens, legal permanent residents, and foreign nationals attending a U.S. university.  Participants must spend their first ten weeks or more in the project working with science or engineering mentors in laboratories at JPL.  JPLGF enhances JPL's relationships with students and their universities for the duration of their graduate studies, provides increased exposure for graduate students to space science/engineering and mission environment at JPL, and the visibility of JPL researchers.

Note that the length of the students' first stay at JPL must be ten weeks or more.
