Student Team Awards
Washington NASA Space Grant Consortium awards funding to undergraduates across the state to help them participate in national competitions either sponsored or sanctioned by NASA.
The competitions in the fields of science, engineering or mathematics are intended to complement their studies.
In the past, Space Grant has supported team projects in the areas of robotics, microgravity, rocketry and other NASA-related fields (click here for a complete list past awardees).
Awards range from $1,000 to $4,000, depending on availability of funding. Applications are reviewed throughout the year. It takes approximately two weeks to review applications once all materials have been submitted.
Please note that some competitions require that team members be full-time students and/or U.S. citizens.
- A completed application form (available online)
- Unofficial copies of each team member's transcript
- A letter of reference from the team's faculty mentor or advisor
- A written description of the project (no more than 3 pages, double-spaced). The description should address the project's significance to NASA and include a brief outline of the roles of the participating team members.
Questions regarding eligibility should be directed to J. Carlos Chavez at the Washington Space Grant office, 206-543-1943, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
