Inspiring the Next Generation of Explorers
The National Space Grant Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides support services to the national network of 52 Space Grant consortia. Established in 1988 to "inspire the next generation of explorers," Space Grant has evolved into a powerful national grassroots educational network that significantly contributes to developing America’s critical science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce.
Working together we are expanding opportunities for Americans to understand and participate in aeronautics and space projects though hands-on research experiences, fellowships and scholarships, educator professional development training, and fundamental research.
A Unique National Resource
The National Space Grant Foundation supports the Space Grant consortia in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Each of these state-based consortia conducts an array of strategically designed programs to support and enhance science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education in their state. For more information about their programs please visit their website or contact their program staff.
For information about the program on a national basis please visit the National Council of Space Grant Directors' website.
