Apply now for Michigan Space Grant Consortium grant and fellowship programs

The Michigan Space Grant Consortium (MSGC) creates, develops, and promotes programs that support research and educational activities focused on space-related science and technology in Michigan.  MSGC projects reflect NASA strategic interests and encourage cooperation between academia, industry, and state and local government on space-related topics.

MSGC provides funding for several grant and fellowship programs:

  • Undergraduate Fellowships:  These Fellowships offer $2,500 to students pursuing projects directly related to NASA strategic interests, including aerospace, space science, and Earth system science; other STEM fields; and educational research topics in STEM.
  • Educational Program Support:  These grants support activities which promote, encourage, and enrich the study of STEM for K-12 students; conduct public outreach related to STEM topics, with a special emphasis on aerospace, space, or Earth system science; and pre-service and in-service teacher training on STEM topics in aerospace, space science, or Earth system science.
  • Research Seed Grants: These grants are designed to support junior faculty members or senior faculty members initiating a new area of research.  Projects should develop research expertise that will allow grant recipients to further develop research areas/topics for submission to other federal or non-federal sponsors.

Proposals for all programs are due to MSGC Wednesday 14 November 2018; all projects will run 1 May 2019 through 30 April 2020.  All grants require 1:1 cost-share.

If interested in a proposal submission or need assistance assembling the required cost-share, please contact Ron Fleischmann, Director of Sponsored Research and Programs (
