What Our Students Say

I was able to travel to international conferences that introduced me to researchers I'm in collaboration with today. Additionally, it allowed me to afford materials and computational time that were integral to the development of my dissertation.

The Alaska Space Grant Program has supported me through their undergraduate scholarship program and multiple undergraduate research fellowships which helped make becoming a NASA aerospace engineer possible. The Alaska Space Grant Program supported me during my first NASA experience as a student researcher with the 2014 Langley Aeronautics Academy. This was pivotal in my professional development, and helped lead to a co-op position at the NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center. These opportunities made it possible to become a NASA civil servant. Additionally, the Alaska space Grant Program supported me with an undergraduate research fellowship that allowed me to collaborate with NASA professionals while attending the University of Alaska. Thank you!
