Funding Opportunities

What Our Students Say

This scholarship assisted with my funding to help me progress towards my degree in civil engineering.

Receiving funding from the Alaska Space Grant Program allowed me to travel to NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and work in the Office of Communications. This internship allowed me to pursue a goal of telling the stories behind the science at the agency, as well as communicate between the community and the center. After that experience, I looked into applying for graduate school to allow myself to further seek out opportunities in science communication, and I am happy to say that I have been accepted as a student during the fall 2018 semester at Johns Hopkins University in their Masters of Arts in Science Writing program. This continuation of my education would not have been possible without the support of the Alaska Space Grant Program.
