NASA Space Technology Graduate Research Opportunities – Fall 2023

Posted on: October 13th, 2022 in: NASA EPSCoR

The NASA Space Technology Graduate Research Opportunities (NSTGRO) solicitation, available on NSPIRES at, has been released as an Appendix to the Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) NASA Research Announcement, titled Space Technology Research, Development, Demonstration, and Infusion 2022 (SpaceTech-REDDI-2022). The proposal deadline is November 2, 2022 (6 PM Eastern, 3 PM Pacific).

The opportunity, up to $84,000 per year, will coincide with the start of the 2023 academic year; up to four years of support are possible for doctoral students. In addition to providing a $40,000 annual stipend, the grant provides support for tuition, health insurance, conference attendance, and the faculty advisor. The grant also provides support for onsite tenure at NASA Centers across the country. Current and prospective doctoral and master’s students (see full eligibility requirements) may have proposals submitted on their behalf. In most cases, NSTGRO23 requires proposal submission directly by an accredited U.S. university.

Recipients will collaborate with leading NASA experts in space technology to acquire a more detailed understanding of the potential end applications of their space technology efforts and directly disseminate their research results within the NASA community and beyond.

To date, over 700 awards have been made to students attending over 110 universities across 42 states and one U.S. territory. Depending on the receipt of highly meritorious proposals, NASA expects to make approximately 60 new NSTGRO awards as a result of this solicitation.
