WASHINGTON - NASA's Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate will accept scholarship applications from Sept. 5, 2008, through Jan. 16, 2009, for the academic year beginning in fall 2009. NASA expects to award 20 undergraduate and five graduate scholarships to students in aeronautics or related fields.
Undergraduate students in their second year of study will receive up to $15,000 per year for two years and a summer internship with a $10,000 stipend at a NASA center. Graduate students will receive up to $35,000 per year for three years and two summer internships at a NASA center with $10,000 stipends. Scholarship money can be used for tuition and other school-related expenses.
Students who have not committed to a specific academic institution or program may apply. However, if accepted, they must be admitted by fall 2009 into a suitable aeronautical engineering program or related field of study at an accredited U.S. university. All applicants must be U.S. citizens.
NASA's Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate works to enhance the state of aeronautics for the nation, transform the U.S. air transportation system, and develop the knowledge, tools and technologies to support future air and space vehicles. The directorate's focus is on cutting-edge, fundamental research in traditional aeronautical disciplines, as well as emerging fields with promising applications to aeronautics.
