NASA Graduate Student Researchers Program
The NASA Graduate Student Researchers Program (GSRP) awards fellowships for graduate study leading to masters or doctoral degrees in the fields of science, mathematics, and engineering related to NASA research and development. This 12-month award includes a required internship at the NASA Center affiliated with the NASA sponsored research.
A student receiving support under the GSRP does not incur any formal obligation to the U.S. Government. The objectives of this program will be served best if the student actively pursues research, teaching, employment in space science and aeronautics industries, or other NASA-related fields after completion of graduate studies.
Amount and Duration: Training Grants are awarded for one in the amount of $30,000. This amount includes a $21,000 student stipend, a student travel allowance of $4,000, up to $1,000 for health insurance, and a $4,000 university allowance, which typically goes to the Research Adviser, who becomes the Principal Investigator for the Training Grant. Awards are renewable up to three years based on satisfactory academic advancement, research progress, and available funding. The NASA Program Manager and the Technical Adviser at the NASA Center or Mission Directorate must approve renewals. All applications are due annually, by the deadline posted on the GSRP website.
The GSRP will only be accepting renewal applications this year. For more information, please visit the NASA Graduate Student Researchers Program website.
