NASA KY Student Research Projects

NASA-KY-KRUPS-capsuleThe NASA KY Space Grant and EPSCoR Programs support research opportunities for Kentucky’s undergraduate and graduate students in a wide variety of academic disciplines.

Students interested in applying for a KY Space Grant fellowship to conduct NASA-related research at KY universities and colleges should discuss the opportunity with their professors.

A faculty mentor will need to submit a Graduate Fellowship (GF) or Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) proposal as described on the KY Space Grant page.

All proposals and budgets must be approved by your institution’s research office.

Kentucky students may also have the opportunity to participate as research assistants for NASA EPSCoR projects. Students should contact their academic department to determine if opportunities are available within their college.

Previously supported NASA KY projects are listed here:

In addition to Kentucky Space Grant activities, college students interested in research can apply for NASA Fellowships and other opportunities.
