NASA Aeronautics Scholarship Program for Engineering, Aeronautics and Related Fields

NASA Aeronautics Scholarship Program for Engineering, Aeronautics and Related Fields

Study Subjects: Enigineering, and related fields
Scholarship Level: Undergraduate, Postgraduate (masters, research, fellowships)
Scholarship Provider: NASA, ASEE
Scholarship can be taken at: USA

Scholarship Description
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is proud to offer fellowships to students in their undergraduate and graduate careers.
The Aeronautics Scholarship Program (ASP) offers our nation's research leaders of tomorrow exceptional funding. (See Information about NASA’s aeronautics programs and Information about NASA and its agency programs).
The program is administered by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).

Eligibility
Undergraduates:
  • You do not have to be accepted into a program at the time your application is submitted; however, should you be selected, the award is contingent upon your admission to a suitable aeronautical engineering academic program or related field of study at an accredited U.S. college or university. Example related fields of study include, but are not limited to, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Mathematics. Please see the extended list of Supported Fields.
  • Applicants must have at least two (2) years of full time study left to complete at an accredited U.S. college or university as of Fall 2013. Applicants to the undergraduate program will typically be students in their sophomore (second) year of study, at the date of application. If you are an undergraduate Junior, you would not be eligible for the undergraduate scholarship unless you are in a five-year program (i.e., expected completion date of Spring 2015).
  • The program is open only to applicants who are citizens or nationals of the United States. The term "nationals" refers to native residents of a possession of the United States such as American Samoa. It does not refer to a citizen of another country who has applied for U.S. citizenship. Persons who hold permanent resident status are not eligible. Proof of citizenship will be required upon formal offer.
Graduates:
  • Applicants must have received or be on track to receive their bachelor's degrees by Fall 2013. Scholarship awardees selected in Spring 2013 must begin their fellowship tenure by Fall 2013.
  • Potential applicants to the program may be in their final year of undergraduate study and already accepted into a master’s or doctoral program, or they may be currently enrolled in a master’s or doctoral program but will not receive their degree until Spring 2015 or after.
  • You do not have to be accepted into a program at the time your application is submitted; however, should you be selected, the award is contingent upon your admission to a suitable master’s or doctoral level degree program at an accredited U.S. college or university in aeronautical engineering or a related science or engineering field of study. Example related fields of study include, but are not limited to, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Mathematics, with a focus on aeronautics-related research such as, but not limited to, air traffic management research and integrated vehicle health management. Please see the extended list of Supported Fields.
  • Applicants must have at least two (2) years of full time study in a Masters or Ph.D. level program to be eligible.
  • The program is open only to applicants who are citizens or nationals of the United States. The term "nationals" refers to native residents of a possession of the United States such as American Samoa. It does not refer to a citizen of another country who has applied for U.S. citizenship. Persons who hold permanent resident status are not eligible. Proof of citizenship will be required upon formal offer.
