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. 


The Montana Space Grant Consortium offers graduate fellowships of $9,000 plus in-state tuition up to 6 credits and fees for one semester. Normally applications are due each year on April 1. Awards are made on a competitive basis to graduate students working on research projects in fields of study relevant to NASA's mission.

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

Graduate fellowship awards are typically for one semester but are renewable on a competitive basis.
