NASA Space Grant Program Overview

In 1989, NASA took the century-old idea of a land grant university and gave it a new spin for the 21st century, creating space grant colleges and universities. Through the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, NASA pioneered an approach to education dedicated to assuring a productive future in aerospace science and technology for the nation.

Currently, 52 independently governed consortia administer NASA Space Grant programs in research, education, and public service. Their purpose is

  • to establish a national network of universities with interests in aeronautics, space, and related fields
  • to encourage cooperation among aerospace industry, government and universities
  • to encourage interdisciplinary training, research, and public service programs related to aerospace
  • to promote a strong educational base in science, math, engineering, and technology from the elementary grades through the university levels.
