NASA 2011 Graduate Student Researchers Fellowship Program


The NASA Graduate Student Researchers Program (GSRP) awards $30,000 fellowships for graduate study leading to masters or doctoral degrees in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, related to NASA research and development. In 2010 NASA expanded GSRP to include students that are interested in becoming teachers or education administrators. This twelve month award includes an internship at the NASA Center affiliated with the NASA sponsored research.


The goal of NASA’s GSRP is to cultivate research ties to the academic community, to help to meet the continuing needs of the Nation’s aeronautics and space-related workforce requirements by increasing the number of highly trained scientists and engineers in aeronautics and space-related disciplines, and to meet the Nation’s need to increase the number of highly trained teachers. Research opportunities described on the GSRP website, are assessed and updated annually to complement the mission requirements of NASA. 


The program supports approximately 150 graduate students annually. NASA’s discipline scientists and technologists evaluate applications based upon academic transcripts, research proposals, Faculty Research Adviser’s recommendation, and the proposed utilization of NASA Center or university research facilities.


Mentoring and internships at NASA Centers are important aspects of the GSRP Fellowship. It is common practice for the Centers to host students during the summer months to fulfill this purpose; however, the schedule may vary depending on each Center’s capacity. Recipients of the GSRP Training Grant must coordinate the schedule for the internship with the Center Technical Adviser and the Center GSRP Program Coordinator. 


Application deadline: February 1, 2011
