The NASA Heliophysics Summer School is a unique educational experience with hands-on learning and lectures focusing on the physics of space weather events that start at the Sun and influence atmospheres, ionospheres and magnetosphere throughout the solar system. To enable larger participation, there will be a virtual week of lectures from July 17-21, followed by a funded in-person week in Boulder, Colorado from Aug 7-11.
Applicants must be majoring in physics with an emphasis on astrophysics, geophysics, plasma physics, or space physics, and be pursuing a career in heliophysics or astrophysics. There is no tuition cost for the virtual lectures, and each in-person participant receives full travel support for airline tickets, lodging, and per diem costs.
Audience: Graduate students and early postdoctoral fellows
Application Deadline: Friday, March 3rd
