Graduate Research Fellowships

Each year the CaSGC provides direct Space Grant support for aerospace-related fellowships to affiliate campuses. These graduate student fellowship opportunities are announced each year through the local Space Grant affiliate campus office. The fellowship awards are for graduate students in aerospace-related science, engineering and technology. Each participating affiliate is given a set of guidelines for administering the fellowships. The program has acted as a catalyst to focus student attention on the science and engineering opportunities involved in the U.S. aerospace program. The Fellowship Program guidelines are as follows:

  • Annual total California Space Grant awards exceed $100,000;
  • Graduate students must be U.S. citizens for Space Grant awards;
  • Each affiliate campus director forms a local selection committee that makes the selection and administers the fellowship program;
  • Each affiliate campus encourages aerospace science and engineering graduate students, particularly underrepresented ethnic or gender groups, to apply;
  • Each award recipient is encouraged to mentor within the campus minority engineering and science programs and in the Space Grant Outreach programs.

In addition to the Space Grant sponsored fellowships, the CSGC coordinates graduate student opportunities involving student - mentor projects with industry and the government. The CSGC also works in close cooperation with the California Space Grant Foundation in providing graduate student opportunities as research interns at NASA Centers
