MSGC Scholarships and Fellowships

MSGC's annual Scholarship and Fellowship Competitions are held each Spring for awards for the ensuing academic year. Awards are normally made to select students enrolled at MSGC campuses in disciplines related to Science, Math, Engineering, Technology or other areas of interest to NASA.

 

Scholarships

The Montana Space Grant Consortium offers undergraduate scholarships of $1,500 for the academic year. Applications are due each year on April 1. Awards are made on a competitive basis to students enrolled in fields of study relevant to NASA's mission. These fields include (but are not necessarily limited to): the Biological and Life Sciences, Chemistry, Geological and Planetary Sciences, Physics and Astronomy, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Sciences, and Civil Engineering.

Awardees must be U.S. citizens enrolled as full-time students at a Montana Space Grant Consortium campus.

Undergraduate scholarships are for one year but are renewable on a competitive basis.

Select campuses choose to award MSGC scholarships in the fall of each year. These applications are due on October 1 to the MSGC Affilate Representative for the campus.
