NASA Rhode Island Space Grant Consortium Application for Graduate Fellows
Due Date: February 28, 2020

Academic Year Fellows work the majority of their time on their studies and research in conjunction with their degree program. They are also a part of a larger group of undergraduates, graduate students, and Research Associates who participate in outreach programs for K-12 teachers and their students, as well as for the general public. Space Grant science education outreach activity and preparation are expected to encompass a small amount of your time and are requirements of the scholarship.

Summer Fellows spend all of their time on their independent research project with their science adviser. They will also be invited to join us in miscellaneous Space Grant activities, provided that they do not conflict with their research project.
