These stipends are offered to students in aerospace, engineering, space science, Earth systems science, biological sciences, computer science, and other related science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) fields. Students working on educational research and public service topics in mathematics, science, engineering, or technology are also eligible to apply. Preference is given to projects directly related to aerospace, engineering, space science, Earth system science, and directly related educational efforts. Stipends available under this announcement are limited to students attending Alaska institutions of higher education.
Applications due March 1
NASA offers professional development and leadership opportunities to students through their Academy and Internship programs. The application process is run through OSSI:SOLAR. A NASA-wide system for the recruitment, application, selection and career development of undergraduate and graduate students primarily in science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines. Opportunities for students in other disciplines are also available. If you apply here students can be considered for all types of NASA internship, fellowship, and scholarship opportunities in one system. A single internship or fellowship application places students in the applicant pool for consideration by mentors for all NASA internships or fellowships. To be considered for Alaska Space Grant sponsorship, please forward to email@example.com a copy of your OSSI:SOLAR application.
