The Connecticut Space Grant College Consortium, a NASA supported Space Grant Consortium, consists of Bridgeport University, Central Connecticut State University, Connecticut Colleges of Technology, Eastern Connecticut State University, Fairfield University, Southern Connecticut State University, Trinity College, the Universities of Connecticut, Connecticut Health Center, Hartford, and New Haven, Wesleyan University and Yale University. The purpose of the Consortium is to encourage research and education in Space/Aerospace Science and Engineering. The Consortium will accept applications for the following fellowships and grants from Undergraduate and Graduate Students.

 

Opportunities available:

 

Graduate Fellowships

Any full-time graduate student of a Consortium college may apply. Students are expected to work on research related to space/aerospace science or engineering under the guidance of a faculty member or a mentor from industry.  (NASA restricts fellowships to U.S. Citizens.)

Undergraduate Fellowships

Any full-time undergraduate student of a Consortium college may apply. Students are expected to work on research related to space/aerospace science or engineering under the guidance of a faculty member or a mentor from industry. (NASA restricts fellowships to U.S. Citizens.)

Student Project Grants

Any full-time student or group of students of a Consortium college may apply. The purpose of this grant is to allow students to purchase items needed for projects that are beyond the normal funds allocated by departments, colleges and universities. (NASA restricts project funds to U.S. Citizens.)

Travel Grants

Students and Faculty of Consortium colleges may apply for travel grants to visit NASA centers to use unique facilities or present their NASA related work at professional meetings. The Consortium expects to award several travel grants.  (NASA restricts travel funds to U.S. Citizens for domestic travel only.)

Industrial Internship – Summer

Any full-time undergraduate or graduate student of a Consortium college may apply. Students are expected to work within industry related to space/aerospace science or engineering under the guidance of a mentor from industry. (NASA restricts grants to U.S. Citizens only.)  Interns will be funded to work within UTC divisions or another CT-based industry during the summer of 2013. This is a 10-week internship assignment and is dependent upon selection by industry affiliate.

Industrial Internships- Academic Year (part time)

Any full-time undergraduate or graduate student of a Consortium college or university may apply. Students are expected to work within industry related to space/aerospace science or engineering under the guidance of a mentor from industry. (NASA restricts grants to U.S. Citizens only.)
