Funding Opportunities

What Our Students Say

ASGP funding helped me to carry out my thesis work and provide useful information for the Native Alaskan village of Nuiqsut. Without ASGP funding I would not have been able to perform my field work, which added greatly to my study.

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!
