Space Technology Grads & NASA Fellowship Opportunities

-------------------------------------

NASA, America’s space agency, is in search of grad students who are interested in performing space technology research beginning in Fall 2011. NASA is offering Space Technology Research Fellowships for an undisclosed number of students and is accepting applications through February 23, 2011.

NASA explains that these fellowships will sponsor U.S. graduate student researchers who demonstrate critical potential to add to the space agency’s well-planned space technology objectives through their studies. This program is sponsored by NASA’s Office of the Chief Technologist, the fellowships’ goal is to provide the nation with a pipeline of highly skilled engineers and technologists to improve America’s technological competitiveness. Selected Space Technology Fellows will carry out cutting-edge space technology research while compiling the skills required for our nation’s budding technological leaders.

Commenting on behalf of the space agency from national headquarters in Washington, D.C was NASA Chief Technologist Bobby Braun who said, “Our Space Technology Graduate Fellowships will help create the pool of highly skilled workers needed for NASA’s and our nation’s technological future, motivating many of the country’s best young minds into educational programs and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. This fellowship program is coupled to a larger, national research and development effort in science and technology that will lead to new products and services, new business and industries, and high-quality, sustainable jobs. Fellowships will be awarded to outstanding young researchers and technologists positioned to take on NASA’s grand challenges and turn these goals and missions into reality.”

We’ll announce the winners of the fellowships later in 2011 as provided by NASA. In the meantime, if you meet NASA requirements, then why not begin to work on your application today? Details about the application and how to submit yours can be found here:
