NASA Space Grant

NASA initiated the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, also known as Space Grant, in 1989. The Space Grant is a national network of over 850 affiliates from universities, colleges, industry, museums, science centers, and state and local agencies. These affiliates belong to one of 52 consortia in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Space Grant is working to expand opportunities for Americans to understand and participate in NASA’s aeronautics and space projects by supporting and enhancing science and engineering education, research and public outreach efforts.
