A. Description / Instructions

   Marshall intends to recruit university Senior Design Teams to develop solutions to our current aerospace                 problems. To do so, we are soliciting your problems and projects that you believe would make exciting senior         design topics in which to engage advanced students. Please find an attached form for describing your                     problem/project. Once collected, these Senior Design topics will be posted on a website maintained by the           NASA Space Grant program, available to more than one thousand institutions of high education.

   Selection: A university Senior Design Team, upon selecting a Marshall Problem Statement, submits a one page       proposal which is reviewed and ranked by the subject matter group originating the problem/project. When a         team is selected, that university agrees to submission of a final written report, and for a two semester team,           delivery of a prototype (if practical), in addition to the final report. At the beginning of the semester in which         the team is activated, Marshall will provide $1,000 for a one semester effort, and $2,000 for a two semester           effort.
