NASA Office of Education Scholarship and Research Opportunities for Aeronautics
NASA Office of Education provides funds for the NASA Scholarship and Research Opportunities, or SRO, which awards scholarships to individuals who are pursuing degrees in undergraduate studies specifically in areas of projected deficiencies in the NASA Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, or STEM, workforce. Through this opportunity, students with a career interest in aeronautics can apply for Aeronautics Undergraduate Scholarships, or AUS, which awards scholarships for individuals pursuing or planning to pursue undergraduate studies leading to an associate or bachelor’s degree in areas related to aeronautics. These scholarships are directed toward enhancing the state of aeronautics for the nation, transforming the nation's air transportation system, and developing the knowledge, tools, and technologies to support future air and space vehicles. Eligibility requirements, degree requirements, budgetary information, and the application process for the NASA SRO AUS can be found at https://intern.nasa.gov/ (click on Scholarships).
NASA Graduates Aeronautics Scholarship
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.
