The JPL University Crowdsourcing Initiative (JUCI) offers access to a rolling list of relevant JPL challenges to which universities can propose to participate in as part of their student’s educational experience. With JUCI there is no exchange of funds.

JUCI students will support real-world space science challenges with JPL as coach. Interactions are typically 1hr in duration twice monthly, and provide opportunity to interact with JPL subject matter experts and hiring managers. JUCI activities have led to funded studies, internships and full-time employment for students. JUCI has been the impetus for creation of new university capability, and has afforded opportunities for faculty to infuse JPL know-how into their programs. The JUCI goal is to develop long-lasting relationships supportive of the JPL mission while growing and identifying future industry talent.

Thank you for your participation in JUCI!
