Each year, Montana Space Grant Consortium offers graduate fellowships of $11,000 plus in-state tuition up to six credits for one semester. (Montana State University students will receive a one-semester full tuition waiver for in-state or out-of-state tuition, thanks to the support of the Graduate School).

Applications are due on April 1st for the following academic year.

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.

As part of their award, awardees are required to complete a final report and give an oral presentation (please fill out this Submittable formto allow MSGC staff the opportunity to attend your presentation).

Graduate fellowship awards are for one semester per academic year but are renewable yearly on a competitive basis (new application required).
