Applications for the 2021 Online Young Scientist Program (YSP) will be open from March 1 to April 15.

Blue Marble Space Institute of Science (BMSIS) provides opportunities for college students and recent grads to participate as Research Associates with the institute, providing opportunities to participate in basic research and to learn about science communication, ethics, policy, and more. YSP Research Associates (RAs) conduct supervised research under direct supervision by a BMSIS mentor. The RA may work on-site or remotely, depending on the needs of the project, mentor, and RA. Funding is available for some projects but not all. Research Associate positions will last nominally three months, though some may last longer, especially those that are funded.
