NASA Scholarship Funding

The NASA Office of Education (OE) is accepting applications for NASA Scholars. The NASA Scholarship is a competitive opportunity that focuses on students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, disciplines, thereby addressing the critical shortage of qualified STEM professionals that the nation is facing. Eligible students include rising freshman (high school graduating seniors or GED recipients not yet enrolled in college), sophomores and juniors, at the undergraduate level, who will complete their undergraduate degree in Spring 2016 or later and community college students with at least two years remaining at the community college. The goal is to address the agency's mission-specific workforce needs. The scholarship includes up to a $9,000 academic scholarship, not to exceed 75% of verified tuition, and a $6,000 stipend for a Summer 2015 10-week internship at a NASA center. The internship provides scholars with a unique NASA research experience and preparation for global competitiveness. NASA OE Scholarships cannot be concurrently accepted or combined with another US Government Federal scholarship or funding, irrespective of the Scholar's Status.

Applications are due May 16, 2014. Applications should be submitted through the NASA One Stop Shopping Initiative at intern.nasa.gov. Applicants should be sure to select “scholarship” for the type of application.
