UNH Space Grant Fellowships

Application Deadline and instructions (Updated 27 April 2021)

The New Hampshire Space Grant Consortium awards typically two or more fellowships each semester for graduate studies leading to a research-based Masters or Doctoral degree in a NASA-related discipline at UNH. NASA-related disciplines cover a broad spectrum of fields, including: physics, space physics, astrophysics, science education, computer science, engineering, geosciences, natural resources, materials research, mathematical sciences, Earth sciences, and life sciences, which utilize space technology and/or adopt a "planetary" view of the global environment.

Awards are usually awarded on a one or (occasionally) two semester basis, and provide stipend and tuition support for Masters or Ph.D. students enrolled full time at UNH.
