The Alaska Space Grant Program (ASGP), a participant in the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, invites applications from U. S. citizens for graduate research fellowship stipends. These stipends are offered to graduate students majoring in science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics (STEM) fields. Preference is given to projects directly related to NASA's interests. Stipends available under this announcement are limited to students attending Alaska institutions of higher education.
While all qualified students are encouraged to apply, women and individuals from underrepresented groups, specifically, Alaska Natives, Native Americans, African Americans, Hispanics, Pacific Islanders, and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. Students are required to identify a faculty mentor with whom they intend to work and who is available to write a letter of collaboration. The mentor must provide a letter of collaboration agreeing to serve in the capacity of mentor for the duration of the award and must provide 1:1 non-federal match. Please provide any potential mentors the “Letter to Potential Mentors” available on the Alaska Space Grant website. The letter of collaboration from a faculty mentor must address the items discussed in this letter.
