Students at the University of Houston are eligible to participate in the Moscow Summer Intern Program as part of a student initiative of the Baker Institute Space Policy Program. The program is a wonderful opportunity for all UH students, but especially those with engineering expertise and an excitement for space exploration.

The Moscow Summer Intern Program brings together top students from around the world to collaborate on space science projects, emulating the success of international cooperation and innovation that led to the launch of the International Space Station. Students chosen to participate in the program are broken into international teams to participate in rocket modeling classes and simulate interplanetary space missions.

The program is rounded out with visits to Russian space facilities – including the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center at Star City, the Bauman Moscow State Technical University Orevo Laboratory, the Russian Mission Control Center in Korolev, the Cosmonautics Memorial Museum, Monino Air Force Museum, Zvezda and Energia – to introduce participants to the inner-workings of space-related ventures.

Only students from Rice University, Brown University, Cornell University, Texas A&M University, the University of Southern California, the University of Texas at El Paso and the University of Houston are eligible to apply to the program.

To learn more about the Moscow Summer Intern Program and how to apply, please visit http://www.bakerinstitute.org/students/moscow-summer-intern-program/. The deadline for applying is May 1, 2017.
