Montana Space Grant Apprenticeship Program

The MSGC Apprenticeship Program is an opportunity for Montana students working in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) to receive funding to work on a research project with an advisor on their campus. Students accepted into the Apprenticeship Program are expected to work 160-500 hours on their research project and will be paid up to $5000.

The MSGC Apprenticeships are on a rolling deadline.

Awards for Research in Engineering and Science (ARES)

Since March 1999, the Montana Space Grant Consortium has made awards available to undergraduate students involved in research activities at smaller Montana campuses. Due to the success of the program at the other MSGC campuses, we are adding MSU-Bozeman, UM-Missoula, and Montana Tech funds to the pool for expanding ARES opportunities to those students starting this Fall. This is an opportunity for students to have funding for compensation of their time on a research project. ARES projects consist of a student and faculty mentor working on research that goes beyond what is taught in the classroom. Student awards will be $900 per semester.

ARES applications for the 2018 Fall semester are due on September 16, 2018 and 2019 Spring semester applications are due December 7, 2018.
