NASA Seeks Space Technology Research Fellowship Applicants


        WASHINGTON -- NASA is seeking applications from graduate students for the agency's Space Technology Research Fellowships. Applications will be accepted from students pursuing or planning to pursue master's or doctoral degrees in relevant space technology disciplines at accredited U.S. universities. The fellowship awards, worth as much as $68,000 per year, will coincide with the start of the fall 2013 term.

        The fellowships will sponsor U.S. graduate student researchers who show significant potential to contribute to NASA's strategic space technology objectives through their studies. To date, NASA has awarded these prestigious fellowships to 128 students from 50 universities and across 26 states and one U.S. territory.

        "NASA's Space Technology Program is building, testing and flying the technologies required for NASA's missions of tomorrow," said Michael Gazarik, director of the Space Technology Program at NASA Headquarters in Washington. "With new technologies and innovation, astronauts will be able to travel safely beyond low Earth orbit and new science missions will make amazing discoveries about our universe. These fellowships will help create the next generation of highly skilled workers needed for NASA's and our nation's future, while motivating careers in science and technology that will lead to sustainable, high-tech jobs while America out-innovates the world."

        Sponsored by NASA's Space Technology Program, the continuing goal of the fellowships is to provide the nation with a pipeline of highly skilled researchers and technologists to improve U.S. technological competitiveness. Fellows will perform innovative space technology research while building the skills necessary to become future leaders.
