N.C. Space Grant, a NASA-funded grant program at North Carolina State University, that supports aeronautics and space-related science in North Carolina, is offering three student funding opportunities. They are:

Graduate Research Fellowship: The objective of the program is to encourage graduate students to pursue research and careers in STEM fields that support NASA’s Mission Directorates. This competitively awarded program requires that students participate in an active, defined research activity in STEM fields that have NASA Mission Directorate applications, inclusive of commercial space or on the ISS. NC Space Grant will grant $10,000 per award for up to 13 student awards.

Undergraduate Research Scholarship: The objective of this program is to engage the future STEM workforce in basic and/or applied NASA-related research projects. This program awards scholarships to undergraduate students who are pursuing academic pathways in STEM fields that support NASA’s Mission Directorates, inclusive of commercial space or on the ISS. NC Space Grant will grant $8,000 per award for up to 12 student awards.

Student applications are due no later than 5 p.m. , Monday, March 13. Late applications will not be accepted for any reason. Faculty Letters of Recommendations are due at 5 p.m. , Wednesday, March 15.

NC Sea Grant-NC Space Grant Graduate Research Fellowship This program invites interdisciplinary proposals from across the state of North Carolina. Proposed work should be relatable to sea and space. The fellowship requires the use of relevant measurement instruments and/or remote-sensing data sources from NASA, NOAA or other sources, to address a high-priority research need within North Carolina’s nearshore environs, coastal areas, watersheds or human activities in these areas. NC Space Grant in partnership with NC Sea Grant will grant $10,000 per award for up to two student awards.

Student applications are due no later than 5 p.m. , Monday, March 31. Late applications will not be accepted for any reason. Faculty Letters of Recommendations are due along with the proposal at the time of submission.
