The LaSPACE Undergraduate Research Assistantships (LURA) program is a reflection of NASA's focus on workforce development. This award provides student support for outstanding LaSPACE Undergraduate Research Assistants to engage in faculty-mentored, NASA-related aerospace, space sciences, or aeronautics research on a LaSPACE campus.

This opportunity is directed, mainly to undergraduate science and engineering students who are interested in space/aerospace science and technology. The intent of the LURA program is to supplement and enhance the undergraduate academic curriculum by providing the student with hands-on mentored research experience, relevant to some aspect of space sciences, engineering, allowing the student to experience the life cycle of a project.

A LURA project is a joint effort between a faculty researcher, who serves as mentor and project Principal Investigator, and one or two undergraduate research assistants. This team may work on the PI's existing space related research or may develop a new Aerospace-related project.
