Washington NASA Space Grant Consortium prepares students for the workforce of tomorrow through experiences in education, hands-on research, and coursework.

Space Grant studentships and fellowships are offered to students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics at WSGC affiliate schools throughout the state of Washington.

We also support research internships for students at colleges and universities statewide. Additional competitive internships are offered in private industry and at NASA centers across the country.

Internships & fellowships

Our STEM internships and fellowships provide hands-on, real-world experience to get undergrads and grad students to the next level.

Studentships

Our studentships provide not only scholarship funding for undergraduates, but professional development to put an internship or fellowship within reach.
