I am pleased to announce the launch of the 2015 NASA / Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) application. It is online and available at http://www.APLapp.com.
Since 2004, the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) has offered summer projects to students interested in working on NASA missions or space-related research opportunities at APL. Students participating in the NASA/APL Internship Program will work at APL, and will make critical contributions to current and future missions or grants during their assignments in the Space Department. The Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) is a not-for-profit center for engineering, research and development. APL is a division of one of the world's premier research universities, Johns Hopkins. The 399-acre campus, 20 miles north of Washington, DC, is home to 4,100 men and women who work on more than 400 programs that protect our homeland and advance the nation's vision in research and space science. http://www.jhuapl.edu/ourwork/default.asp or http://civspace.jhuapl.edu/index.php.
