Director’s Message

Established in 1991, this program is funded by NASA in order to train students and researchers in the state of Delaware in the areas of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and geography.

By means of this training, the state of Delaware aims to help in contributing to the technically literate workforce which NASA will need in the years ahead.

A primary goal of Delaware Space Grant is to provide academic-year tuition award and fellowship opportunities to undergraduates and graduates who attend colleges in the Consortium.  I strongly encourage students at the Consortium colleges and universities to consider applying for these funds at the appropriate time of year.

Funds are also provided for research infrastructure which will assist in the training of students and post-doctoral fellows in a variety of NASA-related fields.  The program supports internships in industry and at NASA centers, during the summer and during the academic year.  Funding is also provided for a significant number of programs which are aimed at professional development of pre-college teachers.
