The LPI/NASA Undergraduate Research Program program is a premier summer research opportunity for upper-level students pursuing studies in geoscience, mathematics, planetary science, physics, and chemistry. The ten-week program is located in Houston, Texas, and serves as an excellent introduction to NASA and the planetary research science pursued by the U.S. space agency. 

Summer student fellowship opportunities are available at the DFG Research Center Ocean Margins at the University of Bremen, Germany. Modeled after the renowned summer program at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, they seek to attract top undergraduate students in the biological, chemical, geological, physical, and mathematical sciences with a strong and genuine interest in ocean sciences to spend their summer vacation doing research at an outstanding marine science institution in Europe.

In addition, the Department offers small scholarships toward tuition for geologic field studies in the summer. Please see the department for more information.  Professors in the department may offer funding for summer research; please contact them directly for more information.
