Texas Space Grant Consortium Fellowships have been established to encourage graduate study in the fields of space science and engineering. Applications from women and underrepresented students are encouraged. Interdisciplinar and integrated work experience are emphasized.
Each award of five thousand dollars ($5,000) will supplement half-time graduate support (or fellowship) provided by a Consortium institution.
The fellowship award is good for one year. Each fellowship may be renewed for a maximum of three years, providing the recipient has spent no more than two of those years as master’s candidates.
Recipients (1) must be citizens of the United States, (2) must be registered for full-time study in a graduate program at one (or more) of the Consortium institutions, (3) must be promised financial support at that institution, and (4) must not have exceeded the time limit described under “duration”.
Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis with consideration of (1) excellence in academics, (2) interest in space, and (3) recommendations from the applicant’s institution.
