Overview:

Graduate Research Fellowships       

ISGC fellowships support graduate students who are conducting thesis or dissertation research in a STEM field, particularly those with an interest in NASA or aerospace-related topics. Keep in mind that "NASA or aerospace-related" doesn't mean that you have to be studying engineering or physics! Our space-enthused fellows study a wide array of subjects. Before you apply, you will need to have a research proposal that has been endorsed by your research advisor.

NASA ISGC Fellowship

The NASA ISGC Research Fellowship is available to full-time graduate students in science, technology, engineering, math, and math/science education and related disciplines. Proposed research must align with the research of at least one of NASA’s Mission Directorates or NASA Office of Education in order to be eligible for consideration.

Please note that this is a one year fellowship.

A note about fellowships: 

Fellowships are different from research or teaching assistantships. ISGC fellowships are exclusively for $25,000. Tuition coverage, out-of-state tuition waivers, health insurance, and other benefits that you might be eligible for as a RA or TA at your university are not included as part of an ISGC fellowship. If you are selected for a fellowship and you are also eligible for an assistantship, think carefully about the financial benefits and drawbacks of each option before accepting either offer. It might help to think of a fellowship as being the equivalent of a scholarship and an assistantship as being the equivalent of a job with benefits.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • Open to all applicants attending Boise State University, Idaho State University or the University of Idaho.
  • Other requirements include:
    • U.S. Citizenship
    • Registered full-time in a graduate level program
    • Study in a NASA-focused research area
    • An undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher, or if the applicant has completed classes, GPA must be 3.5 or higher in the graduate program.
    • If you are planning on proposing a research project related to STEM education (i.e., the teaching of STEM), please be in touch with us at your earliest convenience so that we can plan our selection committee accordingly.
