NASA DEVELOP ambassador program at K-State, opportunities for students

Submitted by Aida Farough


DEVELOP, part of NASA's Applied Sciences Program, has recently launched its ambassador program at K-State under the leadership of Aida Farough, teaching assistant professor of geology. 

The program addresses environmental and public policy issues through interdisciplinary research projects that apply the lens of NASA Earth observations to community concerns around the globe. Bridging the gap between NASA Earth Science and society, DEVELOP builds capacity in both participants and partner organizations to better prepare them to address the challenges that face our society and future generations. With the competitive nature and growing societal role of science and technology in today’s global workplace, DEVELOP is fostering an adept corps of tomorrow’s scientists and leaders.

DEVELOP is currently accepting applications for the summer 2019 term. If you are a DEVELOP alumni, contact Farough at afarough@k-state.edu to join the ambassador program.

All majors and levels — undergraduate and graduate —  and international students as well as U.S. citizens and residents are invited to apply. 

Visit the program's website for more information and application deadlines.
