NASA Nebraska Space Grant Fellowships


  • Limited to U.S. Citizens

  • Graduate and undergraduate students are eligible to apply

  • Full-time and part-time students are eligible to apply

  • Underrepresented minorities and women are strongly encouraged to apply

  • Students must attend one of the Nebraska Space Grant Consortium institutions during the entire timeframe of the funding (fellowships may end in December for graduating seniors or students planning to transfer to another institution).


NASA is interested in the development of the future workforce for the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.  These competitive fellowships are awarded to those students with academic achievement and demonstrated interest in STEM careers. The goal of the program is to recruit and retain students in STEM fields, providing them with workforce skills to prepare them for employment with NASA or the aerospace industry.  The fellowships require engagement in STEM fields, and therefore are not traditional scholarships.  Students must propose a workforce development activity, research project, internship, or similar project for their fellowship.

Deadline and Funding Period: Applications are due May 20 for the funding period beginning in September.  Fellowships are normally funded from September through April during an academic year.  See the application details for specific funding periods and deadlines.

The 2022-2023 fellowship applications were due May 20, 2022 and require a letter from a faculty member at your institution who agrees to serve as your faculty mentor. Stay tuned for FY24 funding announcements, due May 20, 2023.
