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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
