Michigan Space Grant Consortium offers research and public service fellowships to graduate students who successfully compete for the award. Students are required to have a mentor from the faculty research, education, or public service communities, with whom they intend to work. Projects should describe their connection to NASA strategic interests as detailed in NASA Strategic Plan 2014. Preference is given to projects focused on aerospace, space science, and Earth system science. Students working in other related science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, including educational research topics in STEM, are also eligible to apply.
This opportunity is available to graduate students who are U.S. nationals and currently enrolled at MSGC-affiliated institutions (the University of Michigan qualifies). Applicants must have a good academic record and be in good academic standing to qualify for an award. Applicants must also be willing to (i) have their student data reported to NASA and EPSS, the company that evaluates our programs, and (ii) engage in that evaluation process through responding to emails. Women, under-represented minorities, and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. Students currently receiving MSGC Fellowships are eligible to reapply.
