Michigan Space Grant Consortium Graduate Fellowship application workshop: Overview and tips from an MSGC Fellowship reviewer

This is a past event.

Friday, September 17, 2021 11:00am to 11:50am

This is a past event.

The Graduate School is offering support services to assist graduate students in applying for the Michigan Space Grant Consortium’s Graduate Fellowship, including a workshop and one-on-one writing support. 


MSGC’s Graduate Fellowship opportunity supports graduate students from affiliate

 institutions who are conducting research and public service projects relevant to NASA’s strategic interests as expressed in NASA’s 2014 & 2018 Strategic Plans, specifically, research focused on aerospace, space science, and earth system science. Graduate students working in other, related science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields are also eligible to apply. Starting this year, MSGC is piloting an expanded definition of STEM to include support for interdisciplinary projects that include art, so graduate students conducting research and projects relevant to NASA’s strategic interests in disciplines not traditionally considered STEM, such as the humanities or social sciences, are likewise encouraged to apply. 


Fellowship recipients are awarded $5,000.  To be eligible, applicants must be U.S. nationals, have a good academic record, and be in good academic standing. Women, under-represented minorities, and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.  Students currently receiving MSGC Fellowships are eligible to reapply.
