Participants will receive a stipend of $5,000 and be provided with dormitory housing.  Additional funding is available for travel to and from the San Francisco Bay Area, and to help selected students present the results of their research at a professional meeting. 

In addition to working with research scientists at the SETI Institute and the nearby NASA Ames Research Center, the program includes a trip to the SETI Institute’s Allen Telescope Array in Hat Creek, CA, as well as a field experience at hydrothermal systems at Lassen Volcanic National Park. Other student field trips will include Lick Observatory, the NASA Ames wind tunnel, and other locations of scientific interest. At the end of the summer, students will give presentations of their research projects.
