NASA KY FAQ 2021 (pdf)

Q: As a Kentucky college student, how do I get involved?

A: Visit the NASA Kentucky Space Grant Consortium web page to determine the Affiliate Representative from your school and contact them for more information.

Review our website’s project list for faculty at your institution who have received NASA Kentucky awards and contact them for more information about their projects. Apply for NASA internships and additional student opportunities listed on our website.

Q: As a researcher, how do I find a NASA Collaborator if I do not already have one?

A: The best way for a researcher to find a potential NASA collaborator is to survey conference or journal papers authored by NASA researchers in your area. Emailing or calling them to inquire about their research will introduce your related interests and can lead to possible collaboration or the support letter you need for a submission. Contacting them may also lead to productive referrals.

Kentucky faculty can apply for a NASA Kentucky EPSCoR Research Faculty Travel award to visit a NASA facility and meet potential collaborators.
