What is the ASGC Scholarship and Fellowship Program?
The Alabama Space Grant Consortium (ASGC), a member of the NASA National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, supports undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships for students studying in an aerospace-related discipline at participating universities. The awards are made to United States citizens with proven academic excellence and accomplishments. In Alabama, we award over $500,000 worth of Space Grant Scholarships and Fellowships each year. This adds up, over the 24 years of the Alabama programs, to a total of 753 undergraduate scholarships and 271 graduate fellowships, for a total of almost $6.8 million in financial support. The students are competitively selected from hundreds of applicants each year. This current year $513,500 ($240,500 in matching, non-federal funds and $273,000 in NASA funds) was directed to scholarship and fellowships.
The Alabama Space Grant Consortium Fellowship and Scholarship Program is a major component of the Alabama program. Since 1990, each member university has matched every NASA-funded fellowship on its campus with a second fellowship of equal value. For the 2012/2013 academic year the consortium awarded 13 graduate student fellowships of $37,000 each (including tuition), as well as 1 teacher education scholarship, and 32 undergraduate scholarships of $1,000 each. 41% of the fellowships and scholarships were awarded to female students, and 33% of the fellowships and scholarships were awarded to minority and disabled students.
