Research grants available through Alaska Space Grant

Alaska Space Grant Program is accepting applications for graduate research grants. STEM graduate students at Alaska institutions of higher education are invited to apply.

Graduate research grants of up to $15,000 will be awarded through a competitive process. Grants are open to new and continuing students to support research projects fostering the vision of NASA by encouraging career goals in STEM disciplines, strengthening the nation’s STEM workforce and engaging Americans in NASA’s mission. Students receiving awards in past competitions can apply and receive awards for subsequent competitions. Women, underrepresented minorities and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.  

Students are required to identify a faculty mentor with whom they intend to work. The mentor must provide a letter of collaboration agreeing to serve as mentor for the award’s duration. The mentor must also provide non-federal matching funds of up to the requested budget. 

Applications are due Dec. 1, 2021.
