NASA’s Space Technology Program seeks to sponsor graduate student researchers pursuing advanced degrees (master’s and doctoral) in science, technology, engineering, and math who show significant potential to contribute to the strategic goals and missions of NASA in the area of space technology.
Applications will be accepted from students pursuing or planning to pursue master’s or doctoral degrees in relevant space technology disciplines. The fellowship awards, worth as much as $68,000 per year, will coincide with the start of the fall 2013 term. In addition to providing a $36,000 annual stipend, the fellowship provides generous support for tuition, insurance and a faculty advisor. Also, the fellowship provides support for onsite tenure at NASA Centers and U.S. non-profit Research and Development labs.
To date, NASA has awarded these prestigious fellowships to 128 students from 50 universities across 26 states and one U.S. territory. Fellowship recipients are paired with the Nation’s leading experts in space technology so together we can push the limits of human technological achievement as only NASA can.
Student applications are due by 6 p.m. Eastern Time on December 4, 2012.
