Now Accepting Applications: UArizona NASA Space Grant Graduate Fellowships

March 8, 2023

Are you a UArizona graduate student pursuing a STEM degree? Are you interested in science communication and outreach? Apply today for a Space Grant Graduate Fellowship!


The UArizona NASA Space Grant Fellowship Program provides up to six fellowships per year. The goals of the fellowship program are to encourage individuals to pursue graduate education in a STEM field, support NASA-related research happening at the UArizona, and increase science communication and outreach. What type of NASA-related research are we looking for? As described in the Space Grant Act of 1988, we support any academic discipline or field of study that will improve the understanding, assessment, development, and utilization of space. This includes physical, natural, and biological sciences, and engineering, space technology, education, economics, sociology, communications, planning, law, international affairs, and public administration.

Space Grant Fellowships prioritize the ability to communicate and present scientific research to the public, an important skill in sharing NASA’s research with our community. Beginning this year (2023) the UArizona Space Grant Program is offering two application tracks to receive a Space Grant Fellowship. These tracks include a “Research Track” and “Outreach Track”, explained on our website linked below.


AY23-24 fellowships include a stipend of at least $21,750 plus full tuition coverage.


Candidates must be full-time AY23-24 graduate students at the UArizona enrolled in a STEM degree and be a citizen of the United States per NASA (federal) funding guidelines. Applications are especially encouraged from members of underrepresented groups and women. This fellowship is co-sponsored by the UArizona Graduate College and the applicant's home department. Students must receive a department stipend and tuition commitment to apply for this fellowship, so reach out to your department early.


Applications are due April 14, 2023, and awards will be announced by early May for this AY23-24 award.
