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 space grant allowed me and colleagues to compete in the 2017 Design Build Fly competition. The competition was one of the best learning experiences I gained at UAF. Funding from the Alaska space grant also allowed the club to continue, which was one of my biggest goals with the AIAA club.

Ground Truthing MODIS NDVI Measurements in Remote Areas of Alaska

Global climate warming is amplified near the poles (Cohen et al., 2014) and at higher elevations (Pepin et al., 2015). Using remote sensing in America’s Arctic mountains, the Brooks Range, researchers have observed changes in vegetation types, growing seasons, and plant phenology over recent…

Experiments and PIC Simulations of Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Corona Discharge

The purpose of this Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship proposal is to continue studying the steady state (DC) corona discharge to generate reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (RONS). By studying the steady state corona discharge, we will examine how to effectively generate RONS for…
