About Graduate Fellowships
Fellowships at the masters level will be awarded in the Fall Semester and Spring Semesters. The amount of the award is $4,500.
Fellowships for Ph.D. students will be awarded at $6,000 each, and will also be awarded in the Fall and Spring Semesters. The M.S. and Ph.D. research fellowships must include a tuition waiver as a match. A graduate student may receive fellowships for no more than two semesters. Primary selection criteria are:
Academic excellence (a minimum grade point of 3.00 is required)
Relevance of the student’s discipline and interests to mathematics, science, technology and engineering
Preference will be given to those students not receiving GRA/GTA funding. Partial fellowships may be rewarded to those students receiving a 1/4 GRA/GTA appointment.
Recipients will be required to conduct a science research project under the supervision of a faculty mentor and submit a 10-15 page paper on that research at the end of the semester. The research must be strongly aligned with the research interests of NASA.
