California Space Grant Foundation Grants

The California Space Grant Foundation (CSGF) is a California 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation representing all affiliate members of the California Space Grant Consortium and is a leading member of the National Space Grant program. The National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, established in 1988 by Congress, is administered by NASA under Public Law 100-147 through 52 consortia -- all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. Foundation programs incorporate the following key elements:

  • Provide an environment for strong aerospace industry sponsorship and participation of mentors, facilities, and ideas;
  • Facilitate and manage the interfaces between NASA and the California Space Grant affiliate universities and colleges for aerospace-related research and development (R&D), workforce development, and educational outreach;
  • Place each student/mentor project under the authority of the NASA Space Grant training and fellowship program;
  • Create an alliance partnership (shared responsibilities, personnel, and facilities) between the government, Space Grant affiliates, and industry participants;
  • Utilize a Space Act agreement vehicle that specifies the shared resources (personnel, facilities, and funding) between NASA and the Foundation;
  • Create a workforce development environment where graduate and undergraduate students are responsible for the design, development, operations, and management of each project under the guidance of academic, industrial, and government mentors;
  • Provide the operational interface, both management and contractual, between industry and the NASA projects.
