About Us

The Pennsylvania Space Grant Consortium (PSGC) was established in 1989 at The Pennsylvania State University as a component of NASA’s National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program. The PSGC is composed of fourteen public and private universities and colleges working together with industry and precollege partners to increase Pennsylvania’s participation in the economic, educational, and scientific benefits of our nation’s space program.

The PSGC is part of a national network of 52 state-wide Consortia. The Space Grant mission is to expand opportunities for U.S. citizens to learn about and participate in NASA’s aeronautics and space programs by supporting and enhancing science and engineering education, research, and outreach programs.

The PSGC maintains a diverse array of programs to develop opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to participate in research and discovery. In particular, we strive to provide students with opportunities to be involved with NASA relevant projects, including student flight programs. We aim to assist both K-12 and higher education with the development of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs.

Whether you are an educator, student, researcher or a space enthusiast, I hope that you will find the site useful. Please feel free to contact me, or to contact any member of PSGC for further information.

Sincerely yours,
Dr. Christopher H. House
Director, Pennsylvania Space Grant Consortium
