Financial Assistance

One Session Only:
        August 6-10, 2018
        Jet Propulsion Laboratory,
        Pasadena, California

Application Deadline:
April 2, 2018

Notification of Selection:
By April 24, 2018

There is no registration fee for the course. Partial financial support for airfare and lodging (only) is available to a limited number of individuals.

To qualify for financial support you must:

  1. Receive FULL selection status for participation in the summer semiar,
  2. Live within the United States at the time you file your application and during the summer session, and
  3. Request financial support in your application.
Civil servants, employees of NASA contractors, and individuals living outside the United States are not eligible for financial support.

Participants must initially incur all expenses, then file a travel expense report within 30 days of completing return travel to their point of origin. Participants will be reimbursed 6 to 8 weeks after their travel expense report is received at JPL. The travel report form must include the original hotel and airfare receipts. Copies of receipts are not acceptable. Due to budgetary constraints, there are limited funds to support travel and accommodation. When processed by JPL’s travel accounting group, checks will be issued to reimburse non-local participants for the cost of the lowest available airfare up to $400 (documentation will be required, as well as justification for flights above that amount), plus a maximum of $800 at the designated hotel (2/3 of hotel cost). It is JPL policy to mail reimbursement checks to home addresses only and not to institutions. Allow 6 to 8 weeks after the travel reports are received at JPL to receive reimbursement checks.

Applications must be submitted electronically by April 2, 2018, 11:59 pm Pacific Time. Late applications are not accepted. Exceptions will not be made for any part of the application that is late.
