NASA Provides Two Scholarship Opportunities
January 5, 2009
Motivating Undergraduates in Science and Technology
Motivating Undergraduates in Science and Technology (MUST), is funded by the NASA, and is a joint partnership between the Hispanic College Fund, the United Negro College Fund Special Programs and the Society for Hispanic Professional Engineers. Each year, the MUST project awards up to 100 undergraduate students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, fields with a one-year competitive scholarship of up to $10,000. In addition to the scholarship, students also benefit from year-round tutoring, lecture series and mentoring from STEM faculty and peers.
The NASA Graduate Student Researchers Program (GSRP) is an Agency-wide fellowship program (also called GSRP Training Grants in what follows) for graduate study leading to masters or doctoral degrees in the fields of science, mathematics, and engineering related to NASA research and development. This twelve month award strongly encourages a research experience at the NASA center extending the GSRP Fellowship.
The goal of NASA’s GSRP is to cultivate additional research ties to the academic community, to help meet the continuing needs of the Nation’s aeronautics and space workforce requirements by increasing the number of highly trained scientists and engineers in aeronautics and space-related disciplines. Research opportunities described on the GSRP Web site are assessed and updated annually to complement the mission requirements of NASA.
Underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields (STEM) are encouraged to apply. The application deadline for this program is February 1, 2009.
