NASA Aeronautics Scholarship Program
January 24, 2011

[Students Higher Education]
[Available: Nationally]

NASA's Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate, or ARMD, is investing in long-term research in areas appropriate to NASA's unique capabilities and is meeting its charter of addressing national needs and benefiting the public good. The directorate is advancing the science of aeronautics as a national resource, as well as advancing the concepts, applications and technologies that can be drawn upon by civilian and military communities and by sister government agencies. Fostering new generations of highly skilled scientists and engineers is critically important to the aeronautics community. As part of its commitment to mastering the core competencies of aeronautics in all flight regimes, ARMD is focusing investments in undergraduate and graduate education. ARMD is undertaking a scholarship program focused on aeronautical research and related degree programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The program's purpose is twofold: to provide opportunities to attract highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students to aeronautics and related fields in accordance with the National Aeronautics Research and Development Policy and its accompanying Executive Order, and to help to advance the nation's aeronautics enterprise by investing in the educational development of the future aeronautics workforce.

It is expected that approximately 20 two-year undergraduate scholarships will be awarded annually to rising students typically entering their third year of education at a college or university. Students awarded scholarships under this program will be provided an internship opportunity at a NASA center performing aeronautical research between their junior and senior year.

The scholarship award includes:
-Up to $15,000 awarded for each school year, to be used for tuition, room and board, or other school-related costs.
-Summer internship at a NASA research center with a stipend in an amount up to $10,000.

It is expected that about five two-year graduate scholarships, with a third-year option based on academic standing and programmatic requirements, will be awarded annually. Students awarded scholarships will be provided the opportunity for two eight- to 10-week internships performing aeronautical research at a NASA center during the first two years they are enrolled in the program.

The scholarship award includes:
-Up to $35,000 awarded for each school year, to be used for tuition, room and board, or other school-related costs.
-Summer internship at a NASA research center with a stipend in an amount up to $10,000, not to exceed two internships.
