STUDENT RESEARCH PROGRAM
The National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education (NAFEO) in collaboration with Minority Serving Institutions (MSI), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) are pleased to offer the opportunity to participate in the 2004 summer session of the NAFEO/Ames Research Academy.
The NAFEO/Ames Research Academy is a world-class, shared-use research and education facility located at Moffett Field, California (Silicon Valley). At this facility, faculty and students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI), or Tribal Colleges and Universities will collaborate with industry, academia and nonprofit organizations on research programs that will strengthen NASA for future initiatives that are consistent with NASA’s mission of understanding and protecting our home planet, exploring the universe and searching for life on other planets, and inspiring the next generation of explorers “as only NASA can.”
One important aspect of the program for our Undergraduate students is preparation for Graduate School. Through the use of seminars, mentoring workshops and site visits, students are exposed to numerous opportunities for networking with researchers with many of the top schools in the country, including Stanford University and UC Berkeley. In addition, all Academy Scholars who are completing their Junior Year will be required to take a Graduate Record Exam (GRE) preparation course as part of the academy program while here at NASA/Ames. This mandatory 2 hr class on either Saturday or Sunday will run for a total of 8 weeks. At the end of the preparation course you are advised to immediately take the GRE. Successful completion of this course is your best opportunity to achieve the highest possible score on the exam.
