Grants and stipends to South Dakota undergraduate and graduate student for internships, research, and education related to STEM subjects. Funding is intended to offer educational and research opportunities to students from diverse backgrounds who are pursuing degrees in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Research projects and internships must align with NASA’s mission and those of the SDSGC and its affiliates.

The objectives of the program include encouraging under-represented students, such as Native Americans and women, in STEM-related educational and research fields.  The program offers hands-on, tangible research experiences to student fellowship awardees at NASA Centers, EROS, and industry, which will develop skills that contribute to the future workforce.  All students who receive significant fellowship or scholarship assistance from SD Space Grant will be longitudinally tracked through first employment or beginning of advanced degrees.

Funding options:

  • NASA Center Internships may be: A) fully funded by Space Grant, B) cooperatively funded by Space Grant and NASA, or C) fully funded by NASA. Specifics are determined individually after a student applies and is selected for a NASA internship offer. Case-specific internship stipends may also be provided to students selected for aerospace industry internships.
  • Graduate Research Fellowship stipends will support graduate-level STEM research projects conducted during the academic year and/or summer that must align with at least one of NASA’s Mission Directorate Research Priorities. Research stipend awardees are expected to produce a publication or presentation at a professional conference (i.e., poster and/or talk).
  • Educational stipends for sophomores and above will support STEM related education during the regular school year. Undergraduate research is allowable, but not required, under these stipends.

Higher priority will be given to applications for NASA Internships and Graduate Research Fellowships over Educational stipends, but the program is still open to Educational stipend applications.
