Focus: This Round 2 opportunity is designed to support independently conceived research or hands-on- projects by NSHE undergraduate students in disciplines that will directly advance the missions and goals of NASA. Scholarship projects should generate measurable results or advancements in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM) research that are directly relevant to NASA Mission Directorate research priorities; see attached file.
Funds for the academic year will be disbursed at the beginning of each semester for the duration of the scholarship period – pending the awardee’s maintained “good-standing” as a student at their institution and their mentor’s continued support and approval. Each awardee will be expected to use a portion of these funds to support travel costs to attend a Statewide Nevada Space Grant and NASA EPSCoR meeting to present a poster or talk on their project.
Eligibility: Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) students who are U.S. citizens and full-time undergraduate students enrolled in a NASA-related STEM program will be considered for the full academic year (Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 semesters) research program. Participating students must be supervised by at least one NSHE faculty mentor; and maintain full-time enrollment status at their institution(s) throughout the scholarship period. You must be deemed eligible to receive financial aid by your home institution to receive the scholarship.
Scholarship Amount: $3,000 for the 2022-2023 school year.
Award Period: Fall 2022 through Spring 2023 semesters.
