The OSGC would like to recognize Choose Ohio First, the Nord Family Foundation, and
the Nordson Corporation Foundation for providing financial support to our Scholarship and Fellowship program!
In an effort to encourage advanced education in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics) the Ohio Space Grant Consortium (OSGC) offers financial support through competitively awarded fellowship opportunities. To be considered for a fellowship, students must be citizens of the United States pursuing a graduate degree in a STEM-related discipline at an Ohio member university. Women and underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply. OSGC member schools and related STEM disciplines are listed below. All fellowship recipients are required to propose and initiate a research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor during the academic school year. Recipients must also attend and present the findings of their research/educational activity at the Annual Student Research Symposium, held every April at the Ohio Aerospace Institute in Cleveland, Ohio. Interested students should contact the Campus Representative at their home university for more information. Note that no indirect charges are allowed by the university for fellowship awards. All fellowship awards are contingent on available funding.
Awards to Master's students are $16,000 ($13,000 from NASA and $3,000 from the university, plus a tuition waiver) for the academic school year. OSGC will provide the funding to the university in the Fall. The fellowship may be extended for an additional six-month period if the student's academic performance is acceptable, good progress has been made on the research project, and upon approval of the Campus Representative. Master’s 1 recipients who are interested in an extension are encouraged to follow up with their Campus Representative about their school’s policy. Master’s fellowship recipients are required to attend the Annual Student Research Symposium at the Ohio Aerospace Institute and make a Power Point presentation on their research project. Note that no indirect charges are allowed by the university for Master’s fellowship awards. All Master’s fellowship awards are contingent on available funding.
Interested students should submit a completed application package that includes the following:
- Completed Application Form (includes description of proposed research project)
- Research Program Proposal
- 2 Letters of Recommendation
- Transcript(s) of your undergraduate and previous graduate work
Applications are to be submitted to the appropriate Campus Representative by February 1. Applications are due to the OSGC Program Office by Mid-February.
