Fellowships, co-sponsored by UA/NASA Space Grant and the applicant's nominating department, includes a stipend of $16,000 for one or two years, both in-state and out-of-state fee/tuition waivers, student health insurance, and $750/year for travel to professional meetings.
Candidates must be a graduate student at The University of Arizona studying in a NASA STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) discipline (that is, helping address NASA's mission, which includes, for example, Earth Sciences and Science Education) and be a citizen of the United States. In addition, applicants must meet UA Graduate College requirements for eligibility to be considered for an award.
Awards are funded with Space Grant monies plus a required department cost-share. Space Grant provides a 10K stipend, and stipends for student health insurance. Colleges (through awardee departments) provide non-resident tuition waivers, and departments provide a 6K stipend, registration fee waivers, and $750/year travel funds. Awards are always contingent on NASA Space Grant (Federal) funding.
