North Carolina Space Grant has opened its signature funding opportunities, the Undergraduate Research Scholarship and the Graduate Research Fellowship, for applications for the 2022-23 academic year.
The Undergraduate Research Scholarship is a competitive award geared towards students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields that support NASA’s mission directorates. This program is designed for students interested in research that has aerospace and NASA applications. Recipients are also afforded opportunities to cultivate relationships with peers, faculty and the NASA community.
Selected Undergraduate Research Scholars undertake a research project supervised by a faculty member over a 12-month period, beginning June 1, 2022 and ending May 30, 2023. Research can take place on the home campus or at an industrial or government facility.
The Graduate Research Fellowships are intended to encourage outstanding individuals to pursue research and careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) that support NASA’s Mission Directorates.
NC Space Grant Graduate Research Fellowships provide support for graduate students to supplement and enhance their basic research. Selected participants engage in an active, defined research activity in a STEM field that has NASA Mission Directorate applications.
The research must be supervised by a faculty mentor and may be conducted virtually, on the home campus, or at an industrial/government facility. Selected Graduate Research Fellows will conduct research over the course of a 12-month period, beginning June 1, 2022 and ending May 30, 2023.
NC Space Grant encourages all interested students to attend one of our three virtual information sessions. Both undergraduate and graduate students can learn more about funding requirements and the application process, as well as ask any questions.
