Higher Education Opportunities

The main goals of NASA and the Pennsylvania Space Grant Consortium are to “inspire and motivate students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics” and to “engage students in shaping and sharing the experience of exploration and discovery” through mentoring and outreach opportunities associated with the various programs. We offer fellowship, scholarship, and internship opportunities to graduate and undergraduate students.
