Description

 

Eligible Applicants

 

Established under Title II of the NASA Authorization Act in 1988, the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program (Space Grant) is a national network of 52 individual state-based consortia that fund aerospace-related research, education, and public service projects. Space Grant also funds fellowships and scholarships for students pursuing careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), as well as curriculum enhancement and faculty development programs. Member colleges and universities also administer pre-college and public service education programs in their states. Space Grant expands opportunities for Americans to understand and participate in NASA's aeronautics and space programs.

 

Based on the availability of funding, NASA will continue to help consortia achieve these goals through NASA Space Grant. Funded consortia will be selected through a merit-based competition and evaluated based on standards established by the National Space Grant Program office. Proposals will be accepted from the lead institutions of the Space Grant consortia in each state plus the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.

 

This solicitation seeks to address the following specific objectives of NASA Space Grant:

 

• Establish and maintain a national network of universities with interests and capabilities in aeronautics, outer space and related fields;

• Encourage cooperative programs among universities, aerospace industry, and federal, state and local governments;

• Encourage interdisciplinary training, research and public service programs related to aerospace;

• Recruit and train U.S. citizens, especially women, underrepresented minorities, and persons with disabilities, for careers in aerospace science and technology; and

• Promote a strong science, mathematics, and technology education base from elementary through secondary levels.
